GOJUNOTO - FIVE STORY PAGODA TOKYO

Today’s Five Storied Pagoda was reconstructed in 1973 after the pagoda built in 1648 by Tokugawa Iemitsu was destroyed in firebombing of March 1945. The 1648 Five Storied Pagoda had been declared a National Treasure in 1911. The original Sensoji Temple Five Storied Pagoda was constructed at the same time as the main hall by the military commander Taira no Kinmasa in 942AD. Today’s Gojunoto pagoda includes an additional room for the storage of mortuary tablets, while the relics, which are said to include some of Buddha’s ashes, are kept on the top level.
