Sanjuno-to pagoda of Kofuku-ji temple
- Tourist spots in nara city -

The tourist spot that I will introduce today is Sanjuno-to pagoda of Kofuku-ji temple in Nara. Sanjuno-to means the three-Storied pagoda.
There are always many people around Gojuno-to pagoda of Kofuku-ji temple.
Many people are taking pictures.
Kofuku-ji temple has not only Gojuno-to pagoda but also Sanjuno-to pagoda.
Sanjuno-to pagoda was founded in 1143, damaged in 1180 and was rebuilt soon.
This building is the oldest building in Kofuku-ji temple along with the Hokuen-do hall.
I am going to Sanjuno-to pagoda today.
There are two ways to go to the Pagoda.
One is a way to go to the left, going to the left in the middle of the stone steps going from Sanjo Street to Nan'en-do hall.

The other way is the way to go there, there is a slope descending south from Hokuen-do hall.
