Ukimi-do Pavilion

Ukimi-do Pavilion

The Ukimi-do Pavilion is a hexagonal gazebo with thatched cypress roofing, floating at one edge of Nara Park's Sagi-ike Pond. It's geometric shape reflects beautifully in the water below, and the building itself serves as a rest spot along the waterside. The former Ukimi-do Pavilion deteriorated from age, and its current successor was restored and rebuilt over a period of three years from 1991 to 1994, bringing it back to its former beauty. The pavilion is located just past Asajigahara, near Kasuga Taisha Shrine.
