Senkoji & Senkoji Park Reviews
景色が本当にきれいでした。ケーブルカーで登り、文学の小道を下っている途中に、こちらの千光寺がありますが、見ごたえがありました。 more »The scenery was really beautiful. On the way down the path of literature by the cable car, there is senkoji here, but it was impressive.
ロープウェイで山頂駅まで上り、展望台で360度景色を眺め、文学のこみちを歌人の石碑を見ながら下り、千光寺にたどり着く。本堂でお参りし、少し下ると「ポンポン岩」(一定の所だけ叩くとポンポンと音が違う)このコースを歩いただけでも結構歩いたような気がする。しかし公園はもっと広く美術館や芝生広場などファミリーでゆっくり来るのもいいかも・・春は桜が綺麗らしい。 more »We went up to the mountaintop station by ropeway, and we went up to The Senkoji temple, looking at the 360-degree view at the observatory, and looking at the stone monument of the singer. I think that it walked considerably only by walking on this course when it visits in the main hall, and it falls a little, and the sound is different when "Pom-pom rock" is beaten only in a certain place. However, the park seems to be beautiful cherry blossoms in spring though it might be good to come slowly by the family such as the museum and the lawn plaza more widely.
This temple offers one of the best view of Omamich as you can see from my photo. This region was badly affected by the typhoon and heavy rain in Jul'18 yet you can see no sign of that. If you drive there is ample paid parking of 500yen per entry nearby. Not worth to take the cable car as you'll miss all the fun driving up. And don't miss the local plum juice. Simply amazing.
So beautiful cats are living in mountain. And you can see the old temple. I think if you go up with roap way, you'd better go down on foot. So you can see cats!!
