The Pagoda at Yakuoji


Yakuoji, located in Hiwasa in southern Tokushima,  is temple number 23 on the Shikoku Pilgrimage.


It is a Shingon temple and has a rather unusual pagoda, which may be a variation on a particularly esoteric style of pagoda called a Tahoto which is primarily found at Shingon temples.


For myself, who favors a strong geometric element to my photo compositions, pagodas of any style are fertile ground.


The details are another aspect of the world that intrigues my photo sensibilities.

  1. Thanks for the pics.
    Looks interesting enough, but doesn't the pagoda rather resemble a soft drink bottle?
