  • It's a very nice place to stay. It seems to be an old place, but i was surprised again that it is well maintained.

  • Nishikuni 28th Bill In such a mountain, how did you build it 1300 years ago? It is the one that it chose a place which is really far from Himeji of the 27th. The Sea of Japan side might have prospered as a key point of the trade and the shipping with the Korean Peninsula before. I went by car. It was 500 yen per person for parking fee. Tenbashi Tate looked beautiful when I went up to the top observatory first. It is only proud of the best view in Japan. On the way down to Chengsoji, the sky became suspicious, and it became a thunderstorm as soon as i got to the temple, but I did not get wet. However, it became a heavy rain, and it went down the mountain early only because it was a red mark to visit.

  • Narianji Temple : Nariaiji Temple is located on the north-west of Amano Hashidate up on the hill side of Mt. Nariai approximately at a point of 569 meters above the sea level. The temple is known as 28th point of sacred pilgrimage of 33 temples of ancient west-side countries in Japan holding Kannon Statues. the temple belongs to Shingon sect of Buddhism established in 704. Before the temple was once affected by severe landslide the main hall of the temple was located on a point with even higher elevation than the current position. The important cultural heritage of kannon statue is preserved in its main hall. Visiting this temple is believed to make your wish come true. There is a striking feature of five-story pagoda in its pricincts. This structure is built in 1998 with construction style of Kamakura period. There is a path along the side of the mountain next to the pagoda to an abservation point where you can get a wide panoramic view of Amano Hashidate. You also have an option to reach even higher elevation as you go along the road next to the entrance of the temple. It is about 5 minutes drive by a car approximately 2 km in distance. From this point you get to see the entire view of Miyazu Bay as well as Amano Hashidate. On a clear sunny day you can see as far as the sight of Echizen Coast in the far north-east of this location. There is a large structure of looped frame on the side of the mountain. This is a loop for Kawaranage. It is like a sacred frisbee that you make your wish before throwing them by aiming at the central point of the loop. It is believed that your wish will come true if you make it through the loop. Access to this area by public transportation is by a bus departs from Amano Hashidate Station. there is a service called Tango Kairiku Bus helps you to reach to the point of its Sanmon Gate.
