Climb up the cliff using a large chain and snake-like tree roots at Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple, an ancient religious training ground for ascetic monks since the early 700s. This Japanese national treasure will reward you with sweeping views of Mount Mitoku, a series of charming stone statues, a dancing deity, and a copper mirror showing images of gods. At the end of a steep, 900 m (2,952 ft) long hike across cascades falling over moss-covered boulders and massive slabs of rock, you will reach a wooden observation platform carved into a steep cliff. Only those with hiking boots or shoes with rugged soles will be allowed to climb. Bring water and gloves.

  • Friends taste fit while we slip in the rain, I climbed. Is usually 1.5 hours is enough and steep ascents, as well as foot arm becomes Pampanga (to grab branches, etc.). Becomes soaked in sweat, tired we also 吹tsu飛bimasu Temple. Climbing down is dangerous, so I have trousers cotton work gloves and clothes.

  • When viewed on very steep mountain and threw petals of the Lotus God great bodhisattva and according to legend, fell on Hall made do on the cliff edge, said every year climbers were sliding down, being dead, check the clothes and shoes and doesn't allow in sneakers. Or 12 months to 3 months is forbidden. Also doing advance preparations because there are many restrictions, please enter. There is something fascinating building small but rugged terrain and unusual plants, rarely seen, and sliding, please bear in mind that no change there, it became a dangerous mountain.

  • Many people rooted on Chapel days is something you can be sure if you go is like that, but according to our priest, is not. Short distance is the difference between the high and low, is a more dangerous place. So many people working up there, not also climbed. This is all "your edge" it seems. Channels do, cannot see the person seems to edge of the person. It is hoping that once visits climbing up temple as a place of study and life. ZAO gongen statue always worship. Elderly people could telescope launch Hall oratory to free. Also please you any margin is.
