“Gake-No-Kannon” is a temple in Tateyama city. Gake-No-Kannon is a popular name, and is officially called” Daifuku-ji”. It was built in 717 in hope of the safety and good result for fishing of the local fishermen. The current main hall was built in 1926, having been destroyed several times due to fires, earthquakes, landslides, etc. “Kannon-do” is the most distinctive feature of “Gake-No-Kannon”. “Gake” means cliff in Japanese. The “Kannon Temple” is built to stick to the cliff on the middle of Funagata Mountain, and its appearance is worth a look. You can climb the stairs at Kanon-do. In addition, behind the Kannon-do, the oldest Buddha statue in Chiba Prefecture is carved on a cliff about 1.5 meters high.
“Nojimasaki lighthouse” is a large lighthouse with a height of 29m and is located at the southernmost tip of the Boso Peninsula. It was one of the first eight Western-style lighthouses in Japan. They established by the Four-nation Treaty of the United States, United Kingdom, France and the Netherlands in 1866. It was built by a French engineer and turned that on in 1869. It is a tangible cultural property of the country that has been used since then. You can enjoy the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean from Nojimasaki lighthouse. So we hope you can visit the sunny day and enjoy the best view.
“Jorakusan Mantoku-ji Temple” in Tateyama City, was built in 1982 on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. There is no temple as a building, and a huge Buddha lies after going through the gate. The Nehan-Buddha is also known as the statue it represents the end of Buddha. The Buddha of Mantoku-ji Temple is 16 m in length, 3.75 m in height, and 30 tons in weight, and is the world’s largest as a bronze Buddha. Take off your shoes, visit the center, go around the pedestal three times clockwise, and touch the Buddha’s foot ring to hear the great promise. In particular, it is said that there is a benefit to the legs. From the high ground, the scenery of the Pacific Ocean and the islands of the Izu Islands spreads, and many worshipers come to wish that their legs do not get worse.
