Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple, Misasa-cho

(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Mecca of mountain worship. In how many people went to the long weekend in September is higher than expected. This resource to leave and do something clever I felt keenly. Slippery after the rain stopped, but (how of volunteers who understand →) and going on my uncle's will, depressingly feel here. Indeed, the landslide risk is always. Family feel free to come hiking here and a couple are pretty harsh environment it was. Anyway most people, traffic jams happen here it is I sweat more carefully you'd better leave the admission regulations. And I personally, but it would do. Because it can't have placed the uncle of Kana. Would you care about in the mountains early in the morning; Sacred mountains that desire for, not go 2 times I think. Customers who are also still great!
