Visiting Mount Shichimen, the sites where Buddhism is practiced to feel power of nature and prayers

This route starts from the Hagoromo Shiraito Falls, where Oman-no-kata (a concubine of Tokugawa Ieyasu) purified herself, passes each temple along the main approach, visits Shichimenzan Keishin-in Temple, and continues to Shichimenzan Oku-no-in Temple and Jinzu-bo Temple at Sumise along the northern approach. This is a hiking path, which requires certain clothing and equipment. The walkway to the temples and shrines is in the mountains almost at the tree line, and so offers superb views, including Mount Kitadake and the Southern Alps from spots along the way. The view of the sunrise from Goraigo-ba, and Mount Fuji seen from the Oku-no-in Temple are magnificent. Visitors see morning religious services held at Keishin-in Temple and walk down the mountain along the northern approach through a bright forest protected by the gods.
