    Santoku Temple on Temple is on a very steep hill. Be prepared (prepare yourself) then climb. Injuries (sliding) might be. Three days before we climbed out by sliding it. Climb and ensures a sense of accomplishment.

    But here is a temple "outside the imagine all too many times to come. Now, how do you make various Dang? Unthinkable.... In the aftermath of the disaster and of course unlike some, kesari had become a right turn in front of the slope and a climb through the kesari's three courses. Climbing registration fill out and pay 800 yen (from the temple and 400 Yen), here is "climbing", received the shoes and attire check (though visually) received six purification Japanese robe, red door Inn iruhashino across the trail enters the. More on stage than it it still stand and walk forward on hands and knees. Visit is coming up dead... and, of course, the normal climb according to the rules. Proceed to a consideration of the person's non-climbers. It is a mood, OTC and forward road is familiar, but this is not a road, it's not a way to climb. The Kannon-do cave dive it just watch next to the Bell Tower past the Manjusri Hall on the way, finally incredible treasure Hall on Temple, soon reach before. Often made in these places such as Dou's?! except to marvel--is not much surprise. Is 5 months now, but this year opening ceremony was so 4/18. So strange,, so artistic, so Marvel boshu Japan is another unparalleled. It was a temple of bona-fide the hardest part would be ridiculous if I went sightseeing and hiking in the mood. Clothing (especially shoes) is really forbidden and so caution is required. Go trekking shoes must be in two or more persons, not about fitting in. Ordinary sneakers and pumps are not allowed. It is a sacred mountain faith no change here and was built more than 1,300 years have passed.

    Wearing sandals, rock climbing, very interesting place. Famous names that do. Look way up first was of interest, but very difficult. You could enjoy in private than going to an amusement park. Before going to the actual Temple some Temple is the last of the temple can go around to the back.
