  • The temple located at the foot of the mountains open crotch. People who want to go climbing of trees and atmosphere while parking is on the top and bottom is under the parking lot. It is convenient to park at the parking lot on the leg is bad, I don't have time. Said in the middle of the Causeway and the 700-year-old Japanese zelkova, or thick pine trees, so if you are under the parking lot whirlpool. Beautiful three-storied pagoda called "completion of the unfinished tower" approach just show up. Hydrangeas in full bloom until the beautiful green July I went there a little more. It is a place called Temple also known as flowers, seasonal flowers is a beautiful temple.  If you go on foot or by bike from bessho Hot Spring Hill also does not matter if you go by car, followed by the hills kinda hard. He rented in bessho line under nakanogō station may also go up hills while enjoying views of the salt flat bike once in bessho-Onsen station went on bike rental (free), but during no convenience stores or vending machines in hot weather was pretty hard (lol) (free) electric bicycle rent, good.

  • A wonderful, quiet, and historic temple in a somewhat remote area. It has a number of interesting features, such as an outer wall like a castle with openings to shoot through, a three-tiered pagoda, and an inner garden you can view while eating 'ohagi' sweets in walnut sauce. The latter are only available mid-March to November, but not on Fridays (except for a few times -- we went on a Friday before a holiday and were lucky!). Deserves to be better-known, but was so amazing to basically have the place to ourselves on a Friday afternoon.
  • It is a temple located at the foot of the Shioda plain, South of 東前 mountain village famous. Great nature surrounding the pagoda and Hondo now this temple has a fine three-storied pagoda at always lots of visitors crowded [HD] is. Temple dates back about what I don't know, but from now on about 600 years ago, sanuki in Shikoku [, without] (Kagawa Prefecture) of zentsuji [zenntsuuji] (Kobo Daishi's birthplace), Wei that nagahide Saint [Gill]. priest came, this temple was. From most forces of this region that was said was kept salt Castle (remains beyond the Valley just west of the Temple), Murakami (Sakaki), originally the Temple had a character of salt Castle prayer Temple (pray) may. Maeyama pagoda, famous in this temple. This tower is especially 'incomplete Tower' and also called 'unfinished finished Tower', is renowned. Wonder why that name was given. First look at the whole picture. Be aware that some may look at this picture and you guys are strange. Part of the tower that is, further to 2-tier and 3-tier rim [gasp] and railings (勾欄 [kourann]) 2-tier, 3 tier does not yet made, this tower is only further. To put plate margin is never going to be in it at all, and next to the square penetration [pulling out] was intended to keep a margin is out, so at first, but is stopped in for some reason. There is which seems unfinished trenches in addition to the Tower's unfinished tower had said. However, so don't look closely at the original tower climb is 2 tier, 3 layer edges and balustrades decorate with. Some scholars say that's taken up decoration in there and actually become this way, so this is good, has been completed in this, was named "unfinished finished Tower". But grandeur of beautiful curves even if any any disharmony, overlapping layers, towering high 九輪 (near the top of the circle with nine so far), indeed the deep sense of the name Tower. Also southwest of the first layer corner pillars [fillet bashira] in and look at the top artistic form of sculpture is most on the left. This sculpture is penetration [pulling out] that applied to earlier material, wooden nose [horsemanship,] said that is. Gradually to the lion and elephants and tapirs [exposure] of such animals will be. But it is early days, but Fang [horsemanship] also have carved eyes, and. However, the position of the eye is too high, part of the brain is too low. So long "low brain [teinou] wooden nose" that is named after the nickname.
