Kyoto, Japan Attractions
The highlight of this collection of historic buildings is the highest pagoda in Japan. The five-storey structure burned down five times before the present temple was built in 1643. The temple, the main gate, and a lecture hall, which blend Japanese, Chinese and Indian architecture, are surrounded by extensive gardens with teahouses. Inside the Ko-do lecture hall are ancient statues of fifteen Buddhist gods. Originally built in the eighth century to protect the city, Kyoto’s To-Ji is the birthplace of the Shingdon sect of Buddhism. Today, it welcomes visitors and hosts the monthly Kobo-san market fair, which features antiques and crafts, along with weekly flea markets.
