  Pagoda at Asakusa
by dennisKL
 
 

The pagoda, a structure that has evolved from the Indian stupa, usually comes with three (sanju no to) or five (goju no to) stories. Pagodas store remains of the Buddha such as a tooth, usually in form of a representation. The one I saw in Sensoji Temple is 'goju no to'.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
