Head up the mountain to find Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple, a Tendai Buddhist monastery acting as the headquarters of the Tendai sect, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Founded in 788 CE, the monastery's founding father, Saicho, was responsible for introducing the Tendai sect to Japan, and many other influential monks have studied here. Involved in many of the power struggles that defined feudal Japan, the buildings were destroyed in 1571, with most of the current buildings dating back to the early Edo period.

Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple Reviews
まず導線の有料道路「奥比叡ドライブウェイ」だが、普通に通り抜けるとなんと富士山の「富士スバルライン」を軽く超えるセレブ料金。 それで絶景なのか？？ いや、せいぜい汚い琵琶湖を見渡すだけなので想像つくでしょう。 そして私は横川、西塔、東塔の順にまわり、横川から西塔は遠いので車移動、西塔から東塔までは大門坂を思い出させるような厳しい坂道を登って歩いて行ったが、まずこの3か所を巡るのに料金がかかり（通行... more »First of all, it is a toll road "Okuhiei driveway" of the conductor line, but the celebrity charge which exceeds "Fuji Subaru Line" of Mt. Fuji lightly when passing through normally. So, is it a great view?? No, you can imagine it because it only looks over the dirty Lake Biwa at best. And I went around in the order of yokogawa, the west tower, and the east tower, and walked up a severe slope which reminded me of Daimon zaka from the west tower to the east tower moving by car because the west tower was far from yokogawa, and First of all, it costs money to go around these three places, and it costs more than 3,000 yen in conjunction with the toll, and there are donations everywhere called the Yeonyakuji Fan Club, and even the bell is charged. There is no roku one in the souvenir shop, and the seller is really strong in the commercial spirit. Since restoration work takes until 2016 to 2026, the main Nemotonakado does not see anything in appearance, and it is usual even if it goes in the synthesis including the small and medium-sized temple if it says in a big place as a spectacle of the temples and shrines and temples in total. And, because it costs more than the total cost of Nikko Toshogu including the treasure pavilion which does not have the point at all, it is a terribly bad temple of Cospa. I visited Koyasan in front of here, but it's free, including parking. All kumano miyama which turns in front of it is free. I'll be back after the restoration of Nemotonakado, but i'm sure you won't go if you don't feel very good about the charges.
HPを見ると「重要なお知らせ」が載っている。何かと思ったら令和2年3月1日から巡拝料が値上げされるとのこと。 前回来たのはいつだったか、入場料などなかった。各所をお参りして回ったが、日吉神社だけがすでに有料で驚いたものである。悪貨は良貨を駆逐するの喩え通りであろうか。 天気がよかったので久しぶりに登ってみたいと思い、初めてのコ―スを試みた。前はバスで行って徒歩で下山した。今回は坂本ケ―ブルで登り、... more »If you look at the website, you'll find important announcements. If you think somethingReiwa the tour fee will be raised from March 1, 2. There was no entrance fee when i came last time. Only Hiyoshi Shrine was already surprised at the fee though it visited various places. Is the evil coin a metaphor for expelling good coins? Because the weather was good, I thought that I wanted to climb after a long time, and tried the first co-s. I went down the mountain on foot by bus. This time, we climbed on sakamoto ke-bull and went down with the ropeway and the kebull of Yase. It is said that the entrance fee should be paid at the toll booth though it passes the precincts on the way. When he said that he would only come out of Sakamoto to Yase, he warned me not to approach the temple with out of fear. Don't worry, i'll do it elsewhere.
