Jigoku Nozoki, literally meaning "Peeping into Hell", is the name of the observatory which is located on a steep cliff in Kyonan-machi Town, Chiba Prefecture. From the tip of a rock that sticks out at the top of Mt. Nokogiri-yama in the precincts of Nihon-ji Temple, it is thrilling to look down 100 meters (328 feet) into a quarry at the bottom. Turning your eyes you can also have a spectacular view of Tokyo Bay and the gently sloping mountains.

Great place to visit. We went with a car and parked in one of the available free parkings. There are two road, one has a toll, the second coming from Hama-Kayana is free. Some of the paths were not available due to a recent Landslide but it was still a good hike, expect a lot of stairs !

There are lots of Buddhist sculptures and temple that are so wonderful and nice
The mountain top is another most dangerous and so beautiful it’s safety to visited is well mention and nothing to worry
There are lots of people visiting and try to visit so early that you will never miss area around
Don’t forget to take some water or juice it’s long long way to walk here and there
There are lot of good restaurant at base camp

Tiring but rewarding. Great 360-degree view after walking up the 1500 steps.

There was a queue to get to the Hell Peek Point to take a picture. We waited in the slow moving line for about 1 hour and 20min. Luckily weather was good and the view was lovely.
