  • Takkoku no Iwaya bishamon, quite unreadable? If you visit chūson-JI and motsu-ji Temple, proceed to genbikei direction. Morisaki car rocks with a red Torii Gate located right in about 10 minutes you will see. Right side of the road so you can see. Parking is new year's day free. Torii Gates line forward, and Morisaki and ABI bishamon is enshrined in the second floor in the rock. Also Buddha are carved on the walls of the cave. Check only the face now in one piece. Not only the face used to be guessing at the face, may had been chiseled full-length. So the brittle rock weathered feel.
