  • When I climbed a steep mountain trail for another hour from the mossy forest of Shiratani Unsuikyo, the view suddenly opened suddenly, and the flat rock was "Taiko rock" and climbed with great pains. I was afraid of heights, i couldn't stand on the rock and see the wonderful scenery, but it was very pleasant.

  • Taigu Rock is one of the most provocative spots in the whole mountain trip, to climb to the need to walk ten oblique ladders to get to the site, above overlooking the long beautiful mountain views of the house, is really the feeling of the earth under the earth, well worth coming forward.
