  • Is a Shingon sect rice Valley Mountain constant fountain Temple cave. If you go by car 10 minutes by bus from the nearby Ofuna station (500 yen in pay) have private parking in front of. Extends beyond all imagination from the entrance to the long maze of caves. The light a little candle, dark adult 400 yen per person on the brink will go ahead with cold cave.

  • To have a place like this for many years, live in Kanagawa just recently know went I tried. Training of the Shingon sect of Buddhism was so artificial caves in the Shingon sect Dai remember Temple sect rice Valley Mountain constant fountain Temple (now also? ) Enters the cave in would like (insert-Dong, ¥ 400) candles at the entrance. Dim and bright signs lit by light bulbs is going to light the candles in a few metres ahead, so if that bastard's do not have to worry about fire has gone. Items such as mandala, eighteen arhats carved on the walls and ceiling, everywhere. History since the Kamakura period and the training ground was out of date it can feel the history. It is recommended that you go in the caves are some of the places have wet feet so good walking shoes, dress. Also because the cave is strictly prohibited taken if when transported a foot note. Leave the cave when I visited was the cute one, but I passed a group of three. Went out and from-Dong was visit our lot, you should, because at their own pace slowly, silently around want is good time for early May.
