Story & Recommendation
Historical temple with tallest pagoda in Japan close to Kyoto Station
The world heritage site To-ji Temple was built as the south entrance of Heiankyo (the former name of Kyoto city) in 794. The highest Pagoda (55 meters) in Japan enters your vision from the Shinkansen (bullet train) as you approach the JR Kyoto Station. When the 13-meter tall cherry blossom called Fuji Sakura blooms, many people visit the temple to take photos. We highly recommend visiting To-ji around the end of March and beginning of April. There are some interesting ancient buildings where you can see many statues of Buddha. Even if you aren’t Buddhist, you can still feel their impressive and solemn atmosphere.
