Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda, Yamaguchi

(4.8/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • 我們是在湯田溫泉的旅客服務中心租借自行車騎過來的,只要2小時就足夠往返了,記得要租有電動輔助的自行車,到達景點後,可以把車停在旅客服務中心,再進去参觀,五重塔旁有個池子,很多人拍攝塔和週邊植物在水中的倒影,塔本身有超過500年的歷史,整體景觀佈置的很美。 
  • This is a representative there, want to see the if came to Yamaguchi. The tower itself is still beautiful think around the garden is good, this is likely value in combination.

  • Rent a bike at the hotel, city tour. Garden large temple was maintained clean. Great views of the five-story pagoda and the five-story pagoda reflected in the pond. And thanks for keeping this long I think. Many visitors were tourists from overseas. Stores also had a temple and pray in the back. It is good to take a breather.
