A five-storied pagoda rises tall near Kiyomizudera temple. The pagoda is commonly known as the "Tower of Yasaka".
The five-storied pagoda of Hokanji Temple is said to be the oldest tower in Kyoto, and it is famous for its commemorative photos taken on the paved stone slopes by those wearing kimonos and yukata.
The way it is illuminated at night makes for a brilliant sight unlike anything you'll see during the day.
The Tower of Yasaka is a designated important cultural property, and is the only tower that you can observe throughout the entire year. Visitors are even allowed to climb to the second storey.
