(3.9/5 based on 110+ 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.

  • Returning to Tokyo just 10 days. Yesterday's seismic intensity 6 lower Tottori earthquake was okay? Go to Tottori 10 days later... maybe the earthquakes come across the Jr back in the settop go back to decent. So the people that earthquakes occur in the region rather than "good" and said that their visit and visited it only 10 days in... locally and eating was indebted to damage is concerned. Need to visit here quite tough at the temple. The temple are designated national treasures. Of looking up from the bottom and... installing really like this? Wanting ever scene. Such a place, how you built this Dou? Is a highly specified mystery, Japan heritage so here is clearly saying, "extremely dangerous" Hall. From the advance lodging iruhashino "casula" Hill and kesari Hill... This alone is dangerous enough. Additionally this building... in humanly impossible. So sustained, vestiges of this remain in the country by Enno tried to build a the Dou Temple here is considered... maybe not a human, not alien footprints that he left here and there. Six purification and chanting was... visited the national treasure, I felt the danger was only here in Japan.
