To-ji Temple

The East Temple

Founded in the early Heian period from 796 AD, the To-ji Temple is all that remains of a pair of temples that once guarded the Rashomon Gate into Kyoto. Its most famous sight is its five-storied pagoda which stands 54.8 meters (180 feet) high as the tallest wooden tower in Japan. The temple is also designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site because of its historical and spiritual significance.
