Throw your troubles away by hurling an inscribed clay disc from a cliff at Jingoji Temple. Offering a great view from atop a hill at 650 m (2,132 ft) altitude, the most visited Buddhist temple in Takao sits at the end of a 350-step hike up a stone stairway. As you admire the impressive wooden architecture, set in an intensely colored forest, you can alse enjoy panoramic views of a river that meanders through the valley beneath this Shingon shrine. Originally built in 824 CE, most of the present-day structure dates from 1623. Art lovers can admire the temple's statue of Yakushi Nyorai, declared a national treasure, before grabbing a snack at the cafeteria nearby.
