Create an itinerary including Yasakanoto
Stop and savor the impressive structure of Yasakanoto, standing alone, thanks to most of its companion buildings having been destroyed over the years. Take in this wonderful example of Japanese architecture; with its traditional wooden composition and imposing stature, it makes for a great photo opportunity. Note that the overhead powerlines that are usually a common sight in Japanese cities have been removed here to preserve the pagoda's beauty. Make Yasakanoto a centerpiece of your Kyoto vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kyoto attractions planner.

  • Incredibly beautiful pagoda and the remaining of Hokanji Temple. It is situated in a very nice and quiet area of the "old Kyoto" and is definitely worth a visit.
