  • It was built in 1631 as a tower of Ueno Toshogu Shrine by the visit of Toshikatsu Doi, but it was destroyed, and the present tower was rebuilt in 1639, but it has been designated as an important cultural property because of its beautiful appearance. It became the five-story pagoda of Kanei-ji Temple by the Order of Separation of Gods and Buddhas in the Meiji Era, but was later donated to Tokyo. Because the five-story pagoda is located in the grounds of Ueno Zoo, it is necessary to enter the zoo to see it nearby, but it is seen from the middle of the approach of Ueno Toshogu Shrine over the fence.

  • The Pagoda is stunning up close, especially at night. It's part of the Sensoji shrine complex/area. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • A beautiful pagoda with an unusual history tucked away off the main walkways of Ueno park. Good view from Ueno Toshogu Shrine.
  • They looks nice but didn't really fit a zoo
