Nigeire-doh

Misasa owns national treasure named Nageire-doh (throw-in building). June 12th, we had opportunity to climb up there. The throw-in building is a part of Sambutsu temple in Mt. Mitoku, which is known by Japanese local religion Shugen-do.




The Nageire-doh is located at almost top of the mountain. To climb up to the Nageire-doh is training in Shugen-do. It took about an hour to reach there. The Zaoh-gohgen is their statue and I tried to look like it.





Nageire-doh is 1300 years old and under construction. View from Mt. Mitoku is nice and slightly scary.
