About Daigoji Five-storied Pagoda

The Daigoji Five-storied Pagoda (a national treasure of Japan) is the oldest wooden structure in Kyoto Prefecture, completed in 951 to pray for the souls of Emperor Daigo.
Only this five-storied pagoda miraculously remained while the area was burned down due to the Onin War. Although it was severely damaged by the Tensho earthquake, the devastated precincts were reconstructed by the "Daigo no Hanami" party held by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in March 1598.
The total height of the pagoda is 38m, and the sorin part at the top of the roof is 12.8m, which occupies 1/3 of the whole. The stable appearance in which the ratio of the size of the five-story roof gradually changes is called the most beautiful tower in Japan.
Along with Horyuji Temple in Nara and Rurikoji Temple in Yamaguchi, it is one of the three famous towers in Japan. It is valuable as a wooden building in the Heian period, and the mural painting inside is also designated as a national treasure as a relic of the Heian painting.
