The Hokan-ji temple in Kyōto, Japan is also called Yasaka pagoda. It is a 46 meters high pagoda with inclined levels in an ancient part of Kyōto. It was built in 589 by prince Shotoku who saw it in a dream.

You can enter the pagoda to enjoy the architecture and the old paintings. It is at least a very good waypoint to find the Kiyomizu-dera temple up on the hill.
