The area
Address
Neighborhood: Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

We have visited Daigo-ji by early April this year and took a few photos on the National Treasure Goju Tower prior to visiting other parts of the temple. Recommended.

Goju Pagoda was one of the oldest pagoda in Japan and has been classified as the National Treasure of Japan. You were not allowed to enter the pagoda but could take photos from outside. The scenery was particularly beautiful during sakura period. Recommended for others to come to visit Daigo-ji Temple.

Goju Tower, pagoda, is a symbol of Daigoji temple. It is also a national treasure like many other buildings in Daigoji temple. You cannot enter inside, but you can take a nice pictures around, especially during the season of cherry blossoms.

NAME: Daigo-ji Temple Goju Tower

LOCATION: Kyoto, Japan

TIME OF YEAR: March 13

RATING: 4/5

PRICE: Included with tour

RESERVATION: n/a

QUALITY: Very well preserved

LENGTH: 15 minutes

RAVE: Traditional architecture

RAGE: You may miss it if you don't go in the right direction

LOWDOWN: This was part of our week long Golden Route Cherry Blossom tour with All Japan Tours. The highlight of Daigo-ji Temple is the garden but you should stop by the Goju Tower. You may miss seeing it up close if you don't go in the right direction but you can see it from almost anywhere in the vicinity. There is no entry inside the tower.
