Gojuno To, Hatsukaichi

(280+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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 also the views of the Machiya Street was pagoda was built in 1407, and say the arch roof and Red is impressive this airy feel and match the Itsukushima Shrine, there are pictures from the Itsukushima Shrine is the former main street. In addition, grace towers emerges faintly lit up at night and a fantastic atmosphere, different from the daytime.
