Japan's oldest official temple, Shitennoji was founded in 593 by Prince Shotoku, who played a major role in introducing Buddhism to Japan. Set amidst a mystical Japanese garden meticulously designed to resemble the Buddhist Western Paradise, the five-storied pagoda in the inner precinct is truly a sight to behold, especially when it is illuminated after sundown.
