Yasakanoto, Kyoto

3.9
Stop and savor the impressive structure of Yasakanoto, standing alone, thanks to most of its companion buildings having been destroyed over the years. Take in this wonderful example of Japanese architecture; with its traditional wooden composition and imposing stature, it makes for a great photo opportunity. Note that the overhead powerlines that are usually a common sight in Japanese cities have been removed here to preserve the pagoda's beauty. Make Yasakanoto a centerpiece of your Kyoto vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kyoto attractions planner .

  • Five-storied pagoda looks and walk toward the Kyoto Yasaka Shrine, at the end of the Shijo-Dori. This is Mr. Hokan Temple Tower, is commonly known as the Tower of Yasaka. And is illuminated at night, stands out from a distance. It would be nice to walk from Maruyama Park around Mr./Ms. Shimizu.

  • Any of the five-storied pagoda in the temple. Kiyomizu-dera and Yasaka Shrine during the 2-year ban and three years down the Hill between West and you will see. In the spectacular scenery of Higashiyama-Dori, will is better taken in CM and drama.

  • It's just a deliberate detour, just to see the good old miracle, when we arrived we were late in the evening, the sky was beautiful, the color of the tower was very good.
