Enjoy strolling Nihonji temple

Nihonji temple (11 August 2020)

Since it is not recommended to plan long travel or returning to home-town in this summer “obon” vacation season,

my family had a one-day trip to Nihonji temple in Nokorigi mountain in Chiba pref. next to Tokyo.

This mountain is famous of big Buddha image on a cliff and “Jigoku Nozoki” (Hell Lookout) jotted from the cliff.

My family and I strolled through forest and peak on the cliff by watching stone Buddhist statue, carved Arhat sculptures and wonderful view.

Although blowing wind in forest and on the cliff is a little bit cooler than seaside,

hard route on long steps and hot temperature made us soaked in sweat.

Even in short trip, my family really enjoyed wonderful scene, tasty seafoods and

beautiful sunset view of Mt. Fuji from artificial Umihotaru island on our way back to our home.
