It’s a temple that you will pass by if you are heading to the top of takaosan.
Quite interesting and you can ask for your fortune, also do a few things to purify your soul !
Make sure to stop by and relax yourself here !

Mt Takao is beautiful, don't follow Google's direction it will send you down a snake path and you can't stop to do a U turn till the very end. Just pinpoint Takaosan station and then follow the crowd, you won't miss it then.
If your driving parking will be 1000¥.
We did the Red path up which took us about 60 mins but it states it would take people generally 100mins, then we took the lift down. The lift down was an awesome experience and kinda scary too as the lift is more exposed to the view but you don't have a railing to hold on to.
Arrive before or at 8am and there won't be much of a crowd. Best to come on weekdays.
