Nihonji temple

Nihonji temple

I went to Nihonji Temple in Chiba Prefecture.

This temple was founded by Emperor Shomu in 725, and after going through several Buddha schools , it is now a Soto school temple.

The whole Mt.Nokogiri is the precinct of the temple.

Although the temple is well maintained.
It’s said that there are 2,639 steps, which is one of the highest in Japan.

Peeking into Hell

The highlight of this temple is the spectacular view from near the top.

In particular, the observatory called “Jigoku-nozoki” (peeking into hell).

It’s built so that the observatory overhangs into the air, offers a panoramic view of Tokyo Bay, and the cliff directly below is 100 meters high.

On a clear day, you can even see Mt.Fuji far away!

There is another observatory which called’ Jushu-ichirandai’.
