  • This is an ancient temple in the deepest part of the Kyohoku region. It is also famous as a famous spot for Ishikusuhana, and it blooms in front of the gate when the best season comes. Photography is prohibited from the mountain gate at all, and all baggage must be checked in by accepting visitors. The route of worship is not complicated separately, but because there are a lot of stair movements, shoes used to wear are better.

  • I went there with four people in early April. A friend of mine who lives in Kyoto told me, "Last year's typhoon caused a lot of damage, and the road i was going to was too hard because of fallen trees. There was advice, but i thought that the famous place would be full of cherry blossom-viewing visitors, so I went outside. Thanks to you, the weather was great, and despite Saturday, there were only four tourists. An elderly woman who was near the temple gate paid a visit fee and was told about precautions (baggage is prohibited, no photography from the mountain gate) and the order of worship in the precincts. First of all, we visited the main hall, saw yakushi Yago, Narujiniiya, and Hiryu Falls, and then climbed the stone steps and visited Nemotonakain in iwaya stage. Finally, we went into the cave to hear the dripping water droplets dripping through the rock surface from the source of the Kamogawa river. However, there is a bee in the inside, and it flies around with boonbo. At last, the sound of the water of poton poton and the kamo river source was heard. On the way back to the mountain gate, the birds' chirping and the murmuring of the river made me feel peaceful.
