Speaking of the symbols of Kyoto seen from the Shinkansen and Kintetsu trains, we refer to the five-storied Pagoda of "To-ji Temple".
Just by looking at the Pagoda, many people feel they have arrived in Kyoto.
If you go to To-ji Temple, please go to the pedestrian bridge near the south Gate.
From there you can admire the superb view of the Pagoda rising among the modern cityscape.
Did you know that for the special exhibition from April 26 to May 25 guests can enter the Pagoda first floor?
A new mystic world will spread in front of you just by looking at the surrounding Buddha and Mahavairocana statues.
