Toji Temple

The five-storey pagoda of Toji Temple is 57m tall and one of the most iconic symbols of Kyoto. Last re-built in 1643 after a fire ravaged the temple, it was originally founded in the year 794. Toji Temple is associated with Kobo Daishi who established the numinous Shingon sect and there is a plethora of tantric Buddhist artifacts housed within the temple halls.

The temple hosts a massive flea market on the 21st of each month where antiques are among the best buys. There is also a smaller antiques fair held the first Sunday of every month.
