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’.
You can see the beautiful view of Tokyo Bay and the suburban cityscape below.
Also Mt.Fuji can be seen here nice weather days.
Why don’t you climb to the top of Mt.Nokogiri 329m!
It’s in chiba prefecture 90 minutes drive from Tokyo.
You will fully enjoy the spectacular view from Mt.Nokogiri!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
