Where to Go
Détail de l'excursion
-Full day excursion with an English speaking tour leader
Departure from Tokyo by bus passing through the aqua line that crosses Tokyo Bay.
Once satisfied, we will head to the mountain.
It was even drawn by the famous painter of the Edo period, Utagawa Hiroshige.
The temple is built at the top of the mountain and is close to the observation point "Jigoku Nozoki", the "glance into the hell" because of the scary emptiness of almost 400 meters of depths below you. (it is said that people must not approach too much to it to avoid being swept by the underworld!).
There is a place where you will see the biggest statue of the seated Buddha in Japan, more than 30 meters high.
You can also find in the close rising of 1,500 various statues carved more than 250 years ago.
You will be fascinated by those wizardly spectacles that never seen in famous sightseeing spots in Tokyo and outlying cities of Tokyo.
From Kurihama Station, you could head straight back to Tokyo, or enjoy a dinner in Yokohama.
