Toji Temple is a ten-minute walk from Kyoto Station and its five-story pagoda is the landmark of Kyoto, which is 55 meters tall and the tallest pagoda in Japan.
Toji Temple is also famous for its big- scale market called Kobo-Ichi on every 21st day of the month. About 1200 street markets stand in and around the temple, and every month around 200.000 visitors from many places come here to look for something. The stands include antiques, vintage kimonos, socks, handcrafts, dishware, pickles,.. even used bicycles. They open from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m.
I found many foreign people looking at something carefully.
Toji Market is worth visiting.
