Kumano Magaibutsu Reviews
大分国東の石仏を一度見ておきたいと思い出かけました。駐車場から熊野磨崖迄は石の階段が続いていて、富士山の石階段を上っているような結構険しい道でした。あちこちに沢蟹がいてとても自然が感じられましたが、観光地の雰囲気は全くなく、修行場に行くようなところでした。出張のついでに立ち寄ったのですで革靴なので、駐車場まで下りていく帰りも大変でした。磨崖仏のさらに上には神社があるようでしたが、とても上る気にはな... more »I went out thinking that I wanted to see the stone Buddha of Oita kuni east once. From the parking lot, Kumano Ma cliff pass was a fairly steep road like going up the stone stairs of Mt. Fuji with stone stairs. There was a lot of sawa-an here and there, and i felt nature very much, but there was no atmosphere of the tourist spot at all, and it was a place like going to the training place. Because it was leather shoes because it stopped by on the business trip, it was difficult to go down to the parking lot. There seemed to be a shrine above the cliff Buddha, but I couldn't feel like going up very much. The other cliff Buddha was almost close to the plain, so it was not too painful, but it was a Buddha that the hardship of the person who made it was soaked in the body.
途中、え、ここ？と思うくらい鬱蒼とした山の中にありました。 杖を使うのを勧められお借りしましたが正解でした。 30代の私たちで登り10分ほど。かなり急な岩だらけの階段を登り、到着する頃にはヘトヘトでした。年配の方には厳しいかも。 磨崖仏は迫力がありました。 more »On the way, eh, here? It was in the mountain which was so dense that I thought. I was advised to use a cane and borrowed it, but it was correct. We were in our 30s and we climbed for about 10 minutes. I climbed a pretty steep rocky staircase and by the time I arrived, it was hethet. It might be severe for the elderly. The cliff buddha was powerful.
The upper part of the staircase is like a random stone pile up, which is a little hard to climb up. You should get a walking pole at the entrance.
Buddhas in the cliff face. A unique and stunning place, with an enjoyable walk up to the top
