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.

五重の塔は、思っていたより小さかったが、真下からみると迫力があります。 池や樹木の手入れがしっかりしていて、とても綺麗です。 また、障害者トイレに、オムツ替え台があったりと小さなお子さんがいる家族も安心してみて回れますね。 more »The five-story tower was smaller than I expected, but it was powerful when viewed directly below. The pond and the tree are well-cared for, and it is very beautiful. In addition, families with small children and diaper stool in the toilet with disabilities can also be turned around with peace of mind.
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.
