  • Seigantoji Temple from Daimon as Kumano Nachi Taisha Shrine, next to the shrine, as Hill went down. Promenade along the way. It is good but kinda hard to walk there, weather permitting. Falls neatly declining one straight, is so beautiful and brave. Is recommended because you Taki haisyo put so close to good looks.
