The original five-storied pagoda was built by Doi Toshikatsu , the lord of Sakura Castle in Shimousa-no Kuni (present-day Chiba Prefecture) in 1631. The pagoda burnt down in 1639.

It is rebuilt as the Kan'ei-ji Pagoda in 1639 by the Tokugawa Shogunate to protect the Edo Castle against evil spirits. When the Shogunate fell the temple complex was nearly full destroyed. The pagoda is one of the few buildings that remained. Later it ended up inside the Ueno Zoo but it can also be viewed from along the path leading to Ueno Toshogu.
