    Gohyakurakan or aboard a sightseeing lift because arhats mountain is famous for thousands of jizo Buddha's disciples Temple, located near the Zen sea Temple, came to visit. Deva Temple is rebuilt in recent years on the construction of the Muromachi period nor gate is admirable. It is being built so any one building is embedded in the mountain, a mysterious space.

    I regret not knowing even the existence of this temple to visit this area, hot sun spicy feel time constraints, had visited in the lift easily. Still dressed fully in Temple in a mountain and shoes Tabi Shoes, step by step and keep feet on the ground, was to visit. Will never forget the sound of the Bell with a view from the top of the main building in the secularity. After a disappointing gate on surveillance cameras hottoita it was. Remembering that had stolen the statue of was when also recently climbed Mt. Omine NARA Yoshino shrine in the middle of the hopeless and made to feel sad. Then thousand at the jizo-old so what Turner had existed since ancient times, but now obviously sells like amulets, rosaries, as well as "their wishes will come true, such as with didn't want to catch-phrase is.

    I visited many decades in Buri. When did gohyakurakan statue whilst admiring the scenery, atmosphere and very nice it is. Write their wishes to paddle in there to wall zuchi drumming like is that as the young woman thinks, quite long paddle beating was. Then suddenly the guy in charge there see what are you doing?! Would be taught how to do just that! "And shouted. Without such an intense expression, though it is apparently the young woman explained well didn't you hear such thought. In addition, "just from the tap, tap noisy! It's explained in the beginning? Oh no, another no blessings! "Yet but said the woman had very embarrassed to do. Everyone is impressed by the mind, if you have been working in places such as washed almost gently, touching you?. At the same time became uncomfortable in that matter. And I did not say that at that time, protect a woman like my belly, at least on this post.

    Serene and simply stunning! We met with Eika HOKA, a nun whose father initiated the reconstruction of Rakanji Temple 48 years ago in 1969. Eita speaks English as she lived in Spain previously. She informed us that the original temple was burned down 74 years ago in 1943. A visit to the Murodō Cave to check out the 500 arahan (aka rakan or enlightened beings). According to Eita, the hundreds of buddha statues are originals. Wow! Psst! The cable chair return ride, at ¥700 per adult, is a must try. Once in the temple, pay another ¥300 per adult to go to the apex where one can pay respect to the golden standing Buddha and ring the bell two times for good tidings. Btw, the panoramic view of the distant mountains is awesome!

    Photography is prohibited inside. It's very impressive to have a temple built along with high mountains. View there is stunning

    During the temple most marvelously continued to unfamiliar ride halfway up the mountain, feet not confident how to climb using the lift, but she was a great adventure (laughs). Where the main erosion scars such as seaside cliffs, so it looks strange that, and seems old basin was thinking. Like moving from small ponds are carps, have been out water, it falls you go! I hear that "like low-temperature location is not?". It can climb on the rocks in front of the Buddha's disciples Temple (pictured) seems to be pretty hard on the adventure lovers will please.

    One of the few places can climb to the top of the rock formations. View from the gaping hole where very good. The relatively easy climb.
