  •  We who entered the platform cathedral from the nakamon advanced from the front of the golden temple toward the west, and arrived at the west tower of this place through the hex keizo and the company.  The density of the trees was high, and the temple was built among the trees. The present west tower is a building that was rebuilt in the Edo period. The trees used in the building had a moderate historical feel, and the back side and side were built so that they were surrounded by trees. It is said that this west tower is an important building that is positioned as "the large tower and the multi-treasure tower which became a set" in the dangami cathedral.

  • It was built in 886 at the northwestern end of The Temple of The Tower, and was built by Emperor Mitsutaka's request in 886, but the current tower was rebuilt in 1834. The main son of the West Tower is the Kongo Dainichi Tathagata, which is said to be the oldest Buddha image in Koyasan, but it was closed to the public. There is no flashy like the foundation large tower because of the wooden building, but the atmosphere that I want to settle down was felt.
