  • I visited with a lift once again. So quickly that it often during. That is when the last from the bottom is not. Plenty of jizo are enshrined in the temple was built on the mountain. Bokeh bought incense there and block better, have now both my mother and my aunt and worshipped hard, but immediate doesn't seem (lol) with good views from the perch will know if you went and the yabakei location.

  • I stopped by on the way to the Blue Grotto from the eight scenes of a glance. Prominently located halfway up the mountain from far away places this temple is found soon. Stopover at the Summit to lift from the foot of the first visit to go to the Summit. You must walk trail at Rakan-ji Temple Station lifts off (it is up). Beyond the rock caves and prohibited. Photos of where the Cup but was bearable. And the head temple of the Buddha's disciples Temple of national dignity and sense. The shrine also lifts to the Summit. It was very beautiful views from here. At the foot was equipped with free parking.

  • 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!
  • Nice view and culture
  • Adults 800 yen can bounce in the lift up to the top, and in high places. Lift at Rakan-ji Temple Station on the way can get off. Lifts are shaking in the form's Showa 42 years of (as seems to be) in a little thrill because screaming roller coasters and other weak, or a fear of heights lift is recommended not. Also, when I did seem to going from Rakan-ji Temple, Buddha's disciples Temple Station lifts like a tomb, there had a beehive. Bees so large and dangerous. There are a lot of statues standing in front of the Buddha's disciples temple where you can put a votive in write their wishes on the paddle. You can also buy amulet, and 御籤. Rates need to rise up in the main shrine. Through the location of rocks along the way. Be careful there can throw away all worries and nasty things to write in, but does not write it and wishes so. It from the stairs to the stage in more ragged, and along the way are very high and not break up. It will be tough going up to a small child. You may wander away from the feet and do not care. Can, sounds Bell before registering. Make like precipice is very amazing and spectacular is the view from there was impressed by. Going down stairs is also dangerous. When I get enough I want watch out. See high altitude lift down to recommend has been afraid to ride the chairlift on the mountain overlooking. Observatory at the Summit of the mountains and countryside, Outlook looks in the garden. Parking is 2 points. Both are free of charge.

  • Walk and climb. Even lift will arrive soon. Takes about 15 minutes. Dripping with sweat, to mosquito attack. This is the practice. Make like precipice often startle and massaged it. I say crazy hit penalty. Their expressive statue waiting for you. Take no note taking pictures, but says. In the mind and not want to bring dirt in short. That the tongue because it is where the practice of Buddhism.
