  • Thought the building was erected in the middle of the 7th century (Asuka period), abolished in the mid-Heian period. But for the historic site was found during the construction of public housing in the Park hidden in the history of this temple. Ruins of the octagonal tower located in Central Park is now focusing on leaving the trail looks like atmosphere is a intact lot was wrapped in mystery. Most during the Asuka period-Heian period Buddhist history and would be located quite far from the relative position and when the city was in. If erected to 794 in the Heian capital and the capital times, it is so very interesting. Retreat cherry blossom viewing spot is the splendid cherry trees.

  • 20-min. walk from Hankyu line Katsura station West exit. Caution is required because it is a great walking trails, but many vehicles. We come to Highway 142, dotted with shops in straight to the West until route of Kashihara in go, turn left here from the South, walk for a while and say historic park Mae Bus stop. Come here and again see historic park on the West side. Where land reclamation during excavations in 1967, remains is found. Temple name unknown in the land name of the region, known as "Kashihara Temple". Is the center of the tower with octagonal tiles Foundation, four in tennoji-Temple, roof-tiles excavated from the hakuho period was erected is speculated. Is provided in the national historic site. Found less in the 7th century built octagonal tower trail is extremely well-preserved and 0/1971 in nationally designated as an important architectural ruins. Broadening the range from the old temple area was estimated roughly that detected the building afterwards and cloister ruins and trenches standing pillar building of 3 wing, Hall estimated, adding to the historic area. And from Katsura station on the city buses go leisurely round trip on foot it was nice. It was the autumn tint of the historic park and now in bloom is a stunning landscape. By all means visit the octagonal triple Tower marks perished ago the Millennium.
