Rokkakudo can be found in the business district in the heart of Kyoto, with the affectionate nickname of "Rokkakudo-san", or "Mr. Hexagon".
If you look from the main temple above, you can see why the building is called the "Hexagon temple" from the shape of the roof. Aside from the main area, there are plenty of other things around and nearby of the same hexagonal shape. Try to find them all.
You can clearly see the hexagonal shape of the temple from inside the elevator of the next building too (WEST 18).
