Senkoji & Senkoji Park reviews
Loved the vibe of the place. There was also a small cafeteria within the temple complex which is a good place to unwind. more »
Great walk down through temples and paths between traditional homes on the steep hillside. Beautiful natural rock features and stations presenting Haiku. A view across the islands, and inland sea... more »
This temple offers one of the best view of Omamich as you can see from my photo. This region was badly affected by the typhoon and heavy rain in Jul'18 yet you can see no sign of that. If you drive there is ample paid parking of 500yen per entry nearby. Not worth to take the cable car as you'll miss all the fun driving up. And don't miss the local plum juice. Simply amazing.
So beautiful cats are living in mountain. And you can see the old temple. I think if you go up with roap way, you'd better go down on foot. So you can see cats!!
