Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple, Misasa-cho

4.2
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.

  • Please note that it cannot be heard if sneaker sole grip on power is not. Converse is unacceptable! However, all are selling out to root for the training of straw sandals (700 yen) is OK. Wanted to purchase a Memorial, but the number was turned down due to limited. And by the way I tried with Patrick sneakers, but places the "scene, trekking shoes or more is better. Before you start walking "Beware scare you? ' Very much like rock climbing with full hands and feet but were not. However, if you do some stamina and hell even views can be enjoyed. On temple outside the main's Bell in the views of Manjusri Temple, Bell Tower, etc. Main hall for 400 Yen, up Hall, 800 yen.

  • Free parking lot stopped about 30 left immediately past the garden not only places to eat near County Road 21, santoku Temple, was nearly full during the week. Do you can 遥拝 from the road because it did not have time to do so by going to the "haisyo" of the out route from the parking lot and left a 10-minute walk do so arrived to the place of worship. Tourists come here were two people is so small. Looks up Hall for large fixed telescope is located in the shade of a tree, not visible. To move from a fixed telescope 3 m long and from the trees in the distance seen is introduced with the naked eye. Own a telescope as the temple at 2 o'clock in the afternoon for the backlight or MISTED, not clear. Days tilted, and MISTED telephoto camera (Canon SX620HS) time to come clean or was a little disappointing.
