A five-story pagoda stands behind the highest stone torii at the front of the Toshogu approach. This mixture of Buddhist and Shinto styles was seen frequently in Toshogu. The stone torii has a plague inscribed with the words "Tosho Daigongen" written by the Emperor Omizuo. The five-story pagoda painted red is a mixture of Japanese and Chinese styles and enshrines the Gochi nyorai.
