Walking 5 minutes uphill from the cable-car station, you will find a stone staircase leading to the massive gate of this temple. More massive is the 34m-high main hall, said to be the second largest wooded architecture in Japan. Since the 8th century, this place has been one of the major centers of the Shugendo Buddhism and where a pilgrimage starts toward the sacred area around Mount Omine.

Mount Yoshino, the country's best cherry blossom viewing spot, is within walking distance. This area also offers great hiking trails in autumn.

An impressive wooden temple, the second largest wooden building in Japan. It was a nice stroll while walking around Yoshino for the Sakura season.
