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 .

  • Long-awaited Kyoto because we went sightseeing in a kimono. Kimono ➕ Yasaka pagoda is in the picture. I felt pride asked together photographs from foreigners and Japanese. A little hard to walk in kimono on the slope is to recommend the.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
