Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chugoku / Yamaguchi Prefecture / Yamaguchi / Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda
A masterpiece of architecture and a symbol of Yamaguchi, Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda competes with most impressive traditional buildings in Japan. With the distinguished gentle slopes of its wide overhanging roof, it stands 31 m tall (102 ft) on a river bank at the foot of a hill amid lush greenery. Built in 1442, the pagoda overlooks a carp pond. Inside the temple, which was moved here in 1690, you can see models of the 50-plus five-storied pagodas found across Japan. The site, a five minute walk from Kencho-mae bus station and a five minute bus ride from Yamaguchi, makes a great place to take photos.

Ruriko Temple Five-Story Pagoda Reviews
湯田温泉に泊まった次の日に瑠璃光寺五重塔にタクシーで行きました。まだ、紅葉ではありませんでしたが、とても素敵でした。 more »The next day I stayed at Yuda Onsen, I went to the five-story pagoda of Shokoji Temple by taxi. It was not autumn leaves yet, but it was very nice.
山口駅から周辺を観光にて立ち寄りました。香山公園の隣にあります。天気が良く五重の塔がとても素晴らしかったです。山口市内観光で寄って欲しい場所ですね○ more »We stopped by Yamaguchi Station for sightseeing. It is next to Kayama Park. The weather was nice and the five-story tower was very nice. It is a place that I want you to stop by for yamaguchi city sightseeing.
Loved pagoda. Recommend going around the other side of the pagoda to see it behind - it's only a short walk up a hill.
Historic five stories tower made of wood.
