To-ji Temple

Toji kyoto

About a fifteen-minute walk south from Kyoto station, this temple has a five-story pagoda, which has burned down several times since the temple was erected in 794. The current one, however, dates to 1643 and at 57 meters (187 feet) tall, it is the highest in Kyoto. If you are in Kyoto on the first Sunday of the month, don’t miss the excellent flea market held on the temple grounds.
