Mitokusan Sanbutuji Temple, Misasa-cho

4.1
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.

  • I went to my husband and golden. Without checking with her husband well, trust the word "hour", and I went. Indeed, the time is around. Tree climbing grab was ridiculous, which destination to go to. 来renn-indeed, rain or snow and absorbing it, think it. Shoe bottom bashed what is good. Walk my husband purchased warage will become not so it was painful. But it is good to go

  • When you come in the morning 3 again here is a must-see. I visited is 11 months. That was beautiful during this season can not afford such views as tough mountain passes. Really impressed to do pass along the way, climbing the rocks through chain (in the past taking accidents), and the path along the cliff, it's bad "as a national treasure in Japan is dangerous" and said the only narrow road and suddenly emerges. With the thought that I walked there is training for the Shugendo mountain climbed. There is strength and perseverance by all means try.
