The temple built in perfect balance between the rocks is overwhelm the viewer and designated as one of the national treasures

Nageiredo was built when En no Gyoja visited, he built the temple at the foot of the mountain,
then threw it into the caves of the cliff with his strong power, so that it is called Nageiredo. (Throw in temple)

A number of training monks are visiting Mitokusan.
Because the road to the shrine is very harp and some ways are just a chain on the wall to climb up, it is harsh and tough challenge to get up.
Many visitors come to see the sight of the cliff located in a tough road.
