 Toji (East Temple) is a Buddhist temple of the Shingon sect in Kyoto, Japan. It once had a partner, Saiji (West Temple) and, together, they stood alongside the Rashomon, gate to the Heian capital. Toji is located in southwest of JR Kyoto Station. Toji was founded in the early Heian period. The temple dates from 796, two years after the capital moved to Heian-kyo. Toji is often associated with Kobo Daishi (Kukai).
