An online tour (Online Teaser Trip) about Mitokusan Sanbutsuji Temple, Japan’s Most Dangerous National Treasure, was held with National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter Misao Toyoshima as the guide. Highlights from the tour will be introduced in this video.
Mitokusan Sanbutsuji Temple is located on Mt. Mitokusan, which has an elevation of about 900 meters. National Treasure Nageiredo Hall is built on a sheer cliff, and to reach it, one must climb a steep path up the mountain. There is also a nationally famous radon spring in Misasa-cho, and before going to Mt. Mitokusan to undergo ascetic training, it was customary to purify both mind and body in the hot spring.
Mt. Mitokusan is known as a place to purify the mind and body through worship and soothe the mind and body through hot-spring baths. This story, entitled "A Site for Purifying the Six Roots of Perception and Healing the Six Senses," is recognized as a Japan Heritage Site by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
