Gojuno To, Hatsukaichi

4.1
Take in the dramatic angles of Gojuno To, a red-lacquered, five-story pagoda perched on a hilltop. Built in the early 15th century, the structure represents a picturesque example of traditional Japanese architecture--including the position of the rafters and decorative caps on the railings. You can also see some Chinese influence, in the rafter tails and pillars supporting the eaves. Standing at 27.6 m (90.5 ft), its impressive stature is visible all over the town, and said to be one of only five of its kind in the country. You'll need to climb some steps to reach its base, and those with mobility issues may find this a challenge.

  • It is a five-story pagoda on a mountain near the shrine. Five-story pagoda, Buddha like the Tower remains in a stupa to honour that is a very important facility. Would that this mountain near the shrine has an important meaning for some. , However, know the era was built, but who built what is unclear.

  • The five-storied pagoda looked senjokaku stopped before entering the shrine from the mountainside. But the look angle is not good. And then into Itsukushima-Jinja shrine, walking along the corridor on the way to first. Pagoda looked over the roof of the corridor was a beautiful shrine Vermillion and resonates like a vivid orange-red Tower.

Where to stay in Hatsukaichi

With its historic temples and shrines, scenic coastal areas, and wealth of inland trekking potential, Hatsukaichi has a number of accommodations to complement the vast array available in neighboring Hiroshima. Many visitors do decide to stay in the larger city to the east, but if you're particularly set on staying in Hatsukaichi, you won't be disappointed by the choice. Look close to the sea for the more upmarket rooms offering views of the bay, and on some of the narrower side streets for budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The same goes for the island just offshore. With its shrine and history, many choose to stay on Itsukushima, close to the Miyajima shrine.
