Yakuo-in Temple

One of Japan’s famous landmarks is the majestic Fuji-San (Mount Fuji). Though you cannot see the marvelous mountain from the center of Tokyo, outside the city there’s a beautiful hiking trail that leads to views of the mountain, and also takes you to an amazing mountainside temple.

The Yakuō-in Temple was established in the eighth century, though this current version dates from the 1600s. It was founded by Gyoki Bosatsu, a Buddhist priest linked to the construction of the Great Buddha at Todai-ji Temple.
