Tō-ji (東寺, Tō-ji) (East Temple) is when u wanna discover the five-story pagoda structure, a building it reach up to 65m into Kyoto's sky. In the past, the pagoda was seen as an entrance symbol to the city. For some, it still is. To-ji temple might feel quite imposing - not only because of the height of the pagoda but also due to the sense of history that is conveyed through the surrounding garden and towering trees. To-ji incense is my personal favourite. Is a Buddhist temple founded at the beginning of the Heian Period just after the capital was moved to Kyotoin the late 700s. About thirty years after the temple's establishment, Kobo Daishi, the founder of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism, was appointed head priest of Toji, and the temple became one of the most important Shingon temples besides the sect's headquarters on Mount Koya.
