Pennsylvania meets Japan at this unique historic site
Way atop Reading’s Mt. Penn sits a rather unusual structure – a completely ornate and aesthetically accurate, seven-story Japanese style Pagoda. Sure, it’s curiously out of place, but the views offered from this vantage point and the storied history of the Pagoda have made it one of the official must-see attractions of Reading.
From the bold, red roof tiles to the unmistakable corkscrew style finial, the Pagoda has been celebrated by locals and tourists alike as a truly unique destination for over 100 years. And if the beautiful panoramic view and stunning architecture weren’t enough, hungry travelers will find treats, beverages and ice cream in the Happy Cat Café located just inside.
