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.

  • On the way toward the Yasaka Shrine of Kiyomizu-dera temple shrine and then down the sanneizaka saw five-storied pagoda. Of the 46 m-high tower was a stately presence. It is good from the near neck will be hurt, so a little look from a wider perspective.
