Yasakanoto, Kyoto

(4/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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. To visit Yasakanoto and other attractions in Kyoto, use our Kyoto vacation builder.

  • Hanatouro started so I took a photo. Kyoto it is warm on the day Beijing could enjoy the atmosphere. Many cafes and souvenir shops around, it was crowded with people.

  • And is called the symbol of Yasaka 5重no塔, is written a little guide for three days visit in a row, could not see the end. For street road engrossed in photography and action instead of thin car traffic has spread across many annoying and prone to be requires attention as a tourist. Street put up a little I think can take one inspiring evening down the shutter speed, as long as the tripod using a Flash.
