  • From Sakamoto station 20 minutes. There was one Church Temple of the head temple of the Tendai sect. Small roads inside of the Sub-temples, seems to have is training monks. Famous for Akechi Mitsuhide and the clan's temple and was buried in the cemetery near the temple.

  • Places I went at the end of the Sakamoto Temple, it is a Church Temple. Believe in signs written and 1 km from Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine, walked, but was hurried away. Whether left or right, about half a month before the beauty was not foliage of trees on the long road leading to the main hall to imagine. Hands together as the misfortune came alive at the left of the main hall had a clan of Akechi Mitsuhide Sakamoto Castle Tomb, involuntarily sandwiched in between ODA Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi, warlord clan. Of the Temple in is surprisingly large and respectable Buddha were enshrined in the. Of total Buddhist temple was not unscrew all sliding doors from the walls are not very open Temple?

  • Great place for no entrance fee and free parking! Yet, historically very important. There is a grave of Akechi Mitsuhide's family.
  • A beautiful and welcoming place.
  • It is a very good thing. Is plenty of attractions. It is recommended to anyone who likes history. In history's villains (? ) That is handled by Akechi Mitsuhide is loved by local people. Akechi Mitsuhide felt at a slightly different angle, try to Church Temple.

  • Sakamoto tourist office is recommended to come I. Nobunaga's troops was unfortunate, but it is who helped rebuild Akechi Mitsuhide. Still will not toll to cordially and Akechi Mitsuhide and 凞 child's grave. It is recommended through the yamanobe road from Higashi-honganji Temple of the Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine, within walking distance. Good views and the way I think.
