 Yasaka no Tou (Yasaka Pagoda)

Often shown in films and works of art as representing typical Kyoto scenery, this five-storied pagoda stands on the Higashiyama hillside. If you only have one day for your first trip to Kyoto, I would recommend a visit to Kiyomizu Temple and then a stroll along the Sannen-zaka and Ninnen-zaka cobbled pathways down toward the 46-meter (151 feet) tall pagoda to Kozanji Temple and Yasaka Shrine.
