Royal wedding: Westminster Abbey's historic moments

An interior view of Westminster Abbey in London

5-story pagoda (gojyuunotou, 五重塔) by foliosus, via Flickr. A path of 2,466 stone steps leads to the summit of Mount Haguro amidst 600-year-old sugi trees leading past the famous Gojū-tō (五重塔) five story pagoda and numerous shrines. The steps and the pagoda are listed as National Treasures. The Sanzan-Gosai-den temple (三山合祭殿) at the summit venerates the spirits of all three mountains. In addition to religious pilgrims, travellers often stay at the Saikan temple lodgings.
