The hike up the mountain is rewarded the beautiful grounds for this shrine. One of the most scenic places in Japan and well worth your effort if you enjoy nature, shrines and general peace and tranquility.

This is a Buddhist temple sharing the area with the Shinto Nachi Taisha shrine. Long ago this temple was part of a combined Buddhist-Shinto religious complex but it was separated operationally in the 1800s. The elegant, picturesque 3-tiered pagoda is part of the Buddhist temple complex.

We visited the temple during the day, and then went back at 5am for the early morning ceremony. We were the only ones there and the monks included us in the proceedings and invited us for tea and a biscuit after - very nice. I would strongly recommend this, because you experience the temple without the crowd and in a serene setting, as it should be seen.

Nice walk around the temple complex.

You can drive to the TOP by paying 800y for entrance to car park and see the waterfall by skipping the 400 steps climb.

There are 2 Temple complex around this area with the 3 tiered pagoda and waterfall.

Good for photo shoot with the waterfall in the distant.
