Gorgeous Pagoda Looming in the Dark

The most beautiful five-storied pagoda in Japan


The roof of Rurikoji Temple's five-storied pagoda will be undergoing renovations from February 2023 to March 2026. You will still be able to enter Kozan Park during this period.

Latest on Rurikoji Temple

Ruriko-ji Temple is located in Yamaguchi, an old historical city which is often called 'Western Kyoto'.

The five-storied pagoda in this temple is called 'The most beautiful pagoda in Japan', and along with the pagodas of Daigoji Temple in Kyoto, and Horyu-ji Temple in Nara, this pagoda is one of the Top 3 pagodas in Japan.

Beautiful seasonal flowers surround the pagoda throughout the year, and they soothed and pleased me when I visited the temple at the end of April.
