Grand panoramic view of the city

This temple is widely known amongst Japanese history fans as the place where a famous swordsman, Musashi Miyamoto (1584-1645), fought a battle against the Yoshioka School.  There is a waterfall in the temple precinct named Musashi’s Waterfall where he trained his mind while remaining under the harshly cold waterfall.  Today the temple is worshipped as the deity for traffic safety and warding off misfortunes.  The main deity, the Fudo Myo-o, is enshrined in the hall that is located on the cliff.  Visitors must go up 250 steep steps to reach the main hall to see the deity, but will be rewarded with a beautiful panoramic view of the city.
