1-11-18 Shitennō-ji · interesting places nearby
Founded in 593, Shitennō-ji is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Japan, although only the big stone torii (shrine gate) is original, dating to 1294, making it oldest of its kind in the country. In the temple's central precinct there is a five-storey pagoda, which (unusually) you can climb up. The grounds are a somewhat desolate expanse of raked gravel, but there is a pleasant garden, Honbō Teien , just to the northeast of the central precinct. There is also a very good flea market outside the temple on the 21st and 22nd of each month, with antiques and secondhand goods, including old kimonos.
