Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda, Yamaguchi
(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
A masterpiece of architecture and a symbol of Yamaguchi, Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda competes with most impressive traditional buildings in Japan. With the distinguished gentle slopes of its wide overhanging roof, it stands 31 m tall (102 ft) on a river bank at the foot of a hill amid lush greenery. Built in 1442, the pagoda overlooks a carp pond. Inside the temple, which was moved here in 1690, you can see models of the 50-plus five-storied pagodas found across Japan. The site, a five minute walk from Kencho-mae bus station and a five minute bus ride from Yamaguchi, makes a great place to take photos.
