I can see one of these pagodas from my window right here . . at Kew Gardens ! Strange how familiar it makes this feel.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie! Never seen the Japanese Garden at Kew...

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Lovely composition. I find it amazing that the builders of these pagodas figured out how to make them earthquake resistant so long ago.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve. Yes, it always intrigues me when I see such old structures in Japan, considering how many other buildings fall victim to earthquakes.
