Take in the dramatic angles of Gojuno To, a red-lacquered, five-story pagoda perched on a hilltop. Built in the early 15th century, the structure represents a picturesque example of traditional Japanese architecture--including the position of the rafters and decorative caps on the railings. You can also see some Chinese influence, in the rafter tails and pillars supporting the eaves. Standing at 27.6 m (90.5 ft), its impressive stature is visible all over the town, and said to be one of only five of its kind in the country. You'll need to climb some steps to reach its base, and those with mobility issues may find this a challenge.

Gojuno To Reviews

The five-story pagoda of Itsukushima Shrine was originally the five-story pagoda of Kongo-in, which is the child's hospital of daiseiin, but it was transferred under the control of Itsukushima Shrine based on the "Shinto-Buddhist Separation Order" of the early Meiji era. The contrast between the roof of the mulberry and the pillars and rafters was very beautiful and good. The decoration of the inside of the five-story pagoda seems to be very good, but unfortunately it is closed to the public. I hope it will be released someday.
