Toji temple is one of my favorite temples in Kyoto. Its 5-floor pagoda is the tallest (55meter) in Japan’s old pagoda. This was built by 3rd Shogun Iemitsu Tokugawa in 1644, and original was made in 826 by Kobo Daishi. When a super express train Shinkansen closes to Kyoto station, you can watch this tower on the left side. Whenever I see this pagoda, I begin to realize that I really come to Kyoto.
