Places to visit

At its peak, this large-scale temple had as many as 175 buildings.
As well as its famous five-storied pagoda, the Kohfukuji Temple complex also includes the Tokondo Hall and the Museum of National Treasures, which exhibits the statue of Ashura (Fighting demon) and many other important national treasures. Traditional Japanese cultural ceremonies like Takigi Noh (night performances of Noh theatre), and Setsubun-no-Onioi (a ritual to drive away evil spirits on the day before the beginning of spring) are still held at the temple.
