#1 of 20 in Things to do in Misasa-cho
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • You couldn't go up because it was past 3 pm arrived to do. That is because it was the one who could not resist the off-limits either. That seems to slide down, just as a national treasure in Japan access is dangerous and need to be mobilized to rescue every year seems to be a couple of times. This is not allowed admission alone to do the trekking shoes, not about Spike and prohibition, clothes check with. Gloves sold will sometimes get caught in the chain or tree roots. I thought I was coming in without going to do clean around the main temple. And grow trees from where the telescope is on the road, didn't look only a little. But I found that 10 minutes is dangerous. Please take a look at that energy.
