Yasaka-no-to Pagoda - Kyoto, Japan

Hey Everyone!
Walking from Kiyomizu-dera Temple through the back streets of tradition I came across the Yasaka-no-to Pagoda. This Pagoda is a center piece of the Hokanji Temple which is under the Rinzai sect of Buddhism. It is 46 meters high and has been burnt down many times and the current structure has been standing since 1440
I was surprised that I came across such a lovely Pagoda standing in the streets of traditional Kyoto. It added to the excitement. In this area is where I came across Maiko Girls dressed up. You will find many traditional shops, restaurant, tea houses and a Geisha Houses in this area. I added the location at the bottom of the post to find it.
