Kumano Magaibutsu Reviews
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.
大分県豊後高田市にある平安時代後期の磨崖仏です。駐車場から熊野磨崖仏へ向かう熊野権現の道を300ｍ進んで行くと、石造の鳥居から始まる自然石が乱雑に積まれた凄い石段が始まります。 ここの石段は鬼が一夜にして積み上げたという伝説の場所です。かなり急で足元も若干危険ですが素晴らしい風景でした。これだけでもここに来た甲斐がありますが、その石段の上にこそ本当の素晴らしい場所があります。 岩壁に刻まれた巨大な... more »It is a cliff Buddha in the late Heian period in Toyogo Takada City, Oita Prefecture. If you go 300 m from the parking lot to Kumano Gondoju, you will start with a terrible stone steps with a mess of natural stones starting from the stone torii. The stone steps here are legendary places that demons piled up overnight. It was a wonderful scenery though it was considerably sudden and the foot was a little dangerous. It's worth coming here, but there's a real ly great place on that stone step. You can see the left as soon as the huge cliff buddha carved on the rock wall goes up the stone step. The first cliff Buddha is "Fudo Meiwang's Two Children's Statue". Fudo Meiwang is a half-standing statue of about 8 m. There are two small child statues to the right. The second cliff buddha is the Statue of The Great Sun Tathagata. This is a half-body image of about 6.7 m. It is the oldest cliff Buddha of the great est power in Japan. It is indeed gods in the quiet mountain. Kumano Shrine was sitting on the top of the cliff Buddha. There was a small shrine. If you look closely, the main hall is built to get stuck in the rock wall behind. This is also mysterious.
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
