Also called tajuutou ‘½d“ƒ. A generic term for pagodas that are from three to thirteen stories. An even number of stories is never used. Pagodas with a pent roof over an aisle *mokoshi ΦŠK, an extension of the ground floor, are sometimes mistaken for an even number of stories. For example, the Zen style *zenshuuyou ‘T@—l, Anrakuji ˆΐŠyŽ› Hakkaku sanjuu-no-tou ”ͺŠpŽOd“ƒ (1339) in Nagano prefecture and the famous Yakushiji –ςŽtŽ› east pagoda, Toutou “Œ“ƒ (8c) in Nara, both look like six-storied pagodas because they have mokoshi on each of the 3-stories. Three and 5-storied pagodas are common but the only 13-storied pagoda *Juusanjuu-no-tou \ŽOd‚Μ“ƒ, extant is at Danzan jinja ’kŽR_ŽΠ (Kamakura period) in Nara. A 7-storied pagoda exists at Eisanji ‰hŽRŽ› (late Heian period) in Nara, and is made of stone. There is also a 9-storied stone pagoda extant at Joushinji, ςSŽ›, also called Jousenji ιςŽ› (1230) in Kumamoto prefecture.
