  • Nachi full extraction in one. Feel the history in the old temple appearance. Felt that the building as it was reconstructed by Hideyoshi. Kannon Buddha in the 拝memashita clear. I have more followers with the formality, the pilgrimage were setsubun, so people who come because it was ambience.

  • 1-Temple of saigoku 33. Is a Buddhist temple of the Tendai sect. Nachi's mountain. Buddha's Ruyi wheel kanzeon bosatsu. But I feel so memory was seigantoji temple's main gate in the middle are from Nachi Taisha Shrine precincts go directly to seigantoji Temple next to the Nachi shrine goes up, once down from the gate way but I was also from the main gate into the formal feel. We visit konpon-nyoho-Temple (Pagoda Temple), three-storied pagoda. Admission 300 yen was three-storied pagoda, 4th floor, view of the falls from the second floor. Stamp the pit right in his temple. 300 yen.

  • Really is a God. Consideration of the views of the falls, grounds atmosphere, hospitality and wonderful. Steep stairs, wider environment. We recommend good walking shoes.
