  • Under clear blue skies, mountains of Kumano mountains looked very beautiful. Also from the right of the main hall, the look is a three-storied pagoda and Nachi Falls, you can see TV and the same views, I was impressed. In the main hall to feel the flow of history, life water in environment and water.

  • Rare visits to 10 a couple of times in the past, as the weather was just fine. Cloudy Kyoto was concerned because it was empty... still not only distant Wakayama is the weather is completely different. Here you will also worship many times is the great temple is the main temple itself personally natural enough do not know what. Sense of accomplishment came, and still climb this 400 dozen stone steps with a positive impact on assessment of it? Anyway the saigoku pilgrimage in the second (most is forest Temple) is a tiring pilgrimage Temple. Today on the weather, the shrine also tourist people are less so we also photo shoot could advance slowly. For shooting the three-storied pagoda from the same position as picture postcards and waterfall was successful.
