The five-story pagoda is viewed from Toyokuni Shrine (Senjokaku, or "One Thousand Mat Hall ") on Tonooka Hill on the east side of Itsukushima Shinto Shrine. Senjokaku Hall was built in 1587 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi for the monthly Buddhist rite of reading of the Senbukyo sutra. The magnificent hall was built in "irimoya" architectural style with a tiled roof. The cross beams span about 27.27m and the parallel beams about 14.5m.
