Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple, Misasa-cho

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.

  • A site mainly known for his hike of the seven Temples, and its National Treasure: the Nageire-do, which seems to literally "inserted" into the cliff. Hiking allows approaching, but the trail was closed during my stay, due to inclement weather. At the start of the trail, the Sanbutsu-ji temple offers a nice stop. To visit in the summer to avoid disappointment.

  • With his wife and was going to go do, and do not provide moderate from a mountain shrine accepted won't let go to target. Several parking places, but for how many people were on-street parking on the side of the road near the Causeway. For those who climb oratory and telescope is located along the County Road. Trees do views through the trees.

  • Climbing registration received check shoes and apparel, 投入re Temple, it took about 50 minutes. The hardest part of 50 minutes is 30 minutes, such as use both hands, gloves; I think over the hardest part of spiders in the Middle Sally Hill, kazura hills and buildings such as the Hall of Manjusri (important cultural property), Bell Tower, these buildings also how I carried the material so far. I doubt the ultimate 投入れ dang it! It is said that beginning. "How do you make?", there's no place set up scaffolding and feeling "well made" having natural everyone thought that experience to go there to make it do so. Because it cannot be viewed in person, group and us together, let got.
