Osorezan, Mutsu

(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Take a bath in hot springs at Osorezan, one of the three greatest holy grounds in Japan. Believed to be "gates of Hell" by some, this magic misty temple complex has a strong smell of sulfur due to past volcanic activity. Set in the midst of an extraterrestrial landscape, the area has been officially a place of reverence since 862 CE as a temple complex that's centered around Bodaiji Temple on the site. This popular 817 m high (2,884 ft) "Mount Fear" features hot springs, shrines, blasted rocks and bubbling pits, and memorial effigies of children. Ring a bell in memory of earthquake victims. Put Osorezan and other Mutsu attractions into our Mutsu travel itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • In the Tsugaru district it is said and go back to Miyama is dead. Would be made in such areas to terayama Shuji terayama Museum later visited was convinced. People visiting the Festival is called "Itako" trained to summon you. Is called Tsugaru dialect is summoning the voices also say what you know. I now want to visit the Festival.

How in hell by hell, II hell other hell ' tour to woo sori Lake. Daewoo sori Lake found in Tohoku earthquake memorial. Requiem Bell and the Bell of hope, tame and here is a beautiful sound. Hot springs at Mt. osore's admission. Sulphur Springs like dying, I think.
