Mitokusan Sanbutsuji Temple

  • 0

Sanbutsuji is a mountain temple on the premises of 900-meter high Mt Mitoku. The temple, built into the mouth of a cave on a sheer precipice, is a one-of-a-kind national architectural treasure further renowned for the beauty of construction in its jaunty roof and hall support beams. The precise date of construction is unknown, but legend has it that the structure was built from the ground up through the spiritual power of the founder of the mountain asceticism-shamanism tradition Shugendo, En no Ozuno.

Viewing the temple up close requires traversing a rather rough mountain road, but a perfectly agreeable vista is possible from the safety of one’s vehicle at the nageiredo yohaisho.
