Take a peek into hell at Mt. Nokogiri summit 330m and enjoy the view of the middle of Tokyo Bay at Umihotaru, a service area on the Tokyo Bay Aqua-line highway!
Mt.Nokogiri is located near Tokyo Bay in Chiba Prefecture and offers a spectacular view from the top.
It was once used as a quarry, and the quarried stones have been turned into a lookout point called Jigoku-nozoki (peeking into hell).
It is a slightly scary sightseeing spot where you can look down from the edge of the cliff.
The entire mountain is the precincts of Nihonji Temple, and there are many sights to see.
These are including Japan’s largest stone Buddha at 31 m, a stone Buddha like the one in Bamiyan, a statue of the Kannon carved into the cliff, and 500 arhats statues.
From the parking lot of Nihonji Temple, you can reach the summit via 2,639 steps.
