The foot bath was air temperature.
The hike was easy.
A very peaceful place.
I did not have time to try hiking up the mountain but it does not seem like a long route.

Quiet and peaceful temple, sitting on a hilltop. There is quite a climb up to the temple. From the temple, you can also climb up the stairs further to another shrine, or to begin your ascend to Mt Daisen.
Recommended for beginners as it is not difficult. Be sure to make the descend before sunset as it can get dark without many lampposts.

This is the stairway entrance to 大山寺。entrance fee was 300yen per person. There’s a path on the left side of the stairways that leads to another shrine . We didn’t take it as the weather was too cold. Else it would be a lovely 15mins stroll in the woods. This is probably free.

Went in the autumn. Not as crowded as other more popular temples. Reading the other comments, I agree that this temple can be beautiful in all seasons.
