Yamadera is a temple located in the mountains northeast of Yamagata City. With its name literally meaning 'mountain temple', this place is reached by climbing a rock-hewn, steep staircase of 1,015 steps. But visitors will be rewarded by a spectacular view from the main hall, the country's oldest structure made from beech.

In the 17th century, he famous haiku poet Basho dropped in at Yamadera and composed the line - Such stillness, the cry of cicadas seep into the rocks.

Beautiful place with lots of history. The climb to the top takes around 1000 steps but it is definitely worth it. The building are amazing, the view from the top is just fantastic. We were warned that wild monkeys might room around, but we haven’t seen any.

下來爬1015個階梯的喔,许多日本年纪约六七都能完成任务,您也行。风景优美,我在秋天到过,冬天便理想。

H30/11/11 紅葉には遅いかなと思いましたが、なかなかいいタイミングで訪れることができました。
少し離れた千手院まで入れれば、一社七寺11種類の御朱印をいただくことができます。全部いただく必要はないと思いますが、本堂根本中堂の御朱印だけは外さないほうが良いです。
