I'm wondering if it's possible to climb into this kind of pagoda, or are the stores only for decoration?

Does not she know mountains are for climbing, but not holy places (temples, synagogues, mosques...)
Absurd question!
In my next trip to Japan, I want to take time to enjoy the beauty of this unique pagoda architecture and its spiritual symbolism.

In europe, it's possible to climb into the high towers of cathedrals,which are holy places so I don't see why my question was so absurd..

usually we can't climb up top of those towers.
By the way, why those towers are so high?
I think every one can worship temple from far.
So it is not decoration.
