Five-story Pagoda

A masterpiece of historic Japanese architecture

Within the vicinity of Sensoji Temple stands a stately five-story pagoda devoted to Kannon Bosatsu, the Goddess of Mercy.

This Pagoda was originally built in 942, along with the main hall of Sensoji Temple.

Along with the other buildings in the vicinity, the pagoda was repeatedly lost to fire and subsequently rebuilt throughout the centuries.

In 1911, it was declared a national treasure.

The sight visible today was reconstructed in 1973 and measures 53.32 meters in height. The magnificence of this building can be seen from Sensouji Temple and its neighboring shrines.
