I am RYO!
I went to a temple on a deep mountain!
I ran by car to go to this temple, but it was very narrow and difficult😅
There is a very large cedar at the entrance of the temple!
Great! The tree is about 800 years old.
Tree height is 23 meters, trunk circumference is 8 meters!
Great and beautiful like Yakushima cedar!
In the past, shrines and temples have merged in Japan...This temple has an entrance dedicated to the shrine (red gate)
↑This is the entrance (gate) of a general temple
There is a statue of Niou! They are watchers of the temple!
This place is the highest mountain near here↓
There is a temple priest↓
This is the main temple↓
It means dragon temple in the sky(or heaven)
The location of this temple is 640 meters high...
It was built in 911 AD, 1100 years ago
Once this place was a place of training ...
The monks visited the temple wearing their old shoes, "waraji".
Therefore, there are many "waraji" in this temple↓
And what is unique is this 2 ton weight "waraji"↓
Nowadays it is famous as a temple with good edges for legs and hips
There is a place where can climb a little behind the temple↓
This temple is on a very high mountain but there were many tourists on weekdays.
This temple has a old and wonderful religion😊
And I visited a restaurant in an old house, It is a restaurant near the temple↓
Great! I like it!!
Old and good wood scent
This old house was built during -Jingi- era (about 150～ years ago)
A historic restaurant that opened in 1932!
Old Japanese life remains…I love all, so beautiful
It's Udon, a traditional Japanese dish↓
Flour and beautiful water food ...
The bamboo container is very beautiful
Of course, very very good delicious!!
Like a near temple, this restaurant is located on a very deep mountain, on a difficult road…
But I definitely want to visit this restaurant again😊
Thank you for reading!
