1.Two stations from Ikebukuro!Let’s climb Otowa Fuji
Take the 1st exit of the Yurakucho Line “Gokokuji Sta.”
Turn around , you will see the gates of “Gokokuji”.
If you do not even make a mistake, you will not get lost.
When you pass “Niou gate” you will see a white torii at the right side.
Although it is a shadow on the picture(;^_^A the stone monument is engraved with “富士道(Fuji Road)”.
Otowa Fuji is “Miniature Mt. Fuji” that people who are believed in Mt. Fuji, made in the Edo period.
Even those who can not climb Mt. Fuji for various reasons will climb to “Fujimuka”, They will get the same benefit as climbing Mt. Fuji.
Otowa Fuji has “climbing path”, this is the first Stage(一合目).
You will soon reach “Second Stage(二合目）”
There are many mountain climbing streets and You’re worried about “Where should I climb?”
In a word, “Seventh Stage（七合目）”
There may be a another stone monument on the way, but I could not find it.
Just watching the characters engraved on a stone monument, the font is fun(*￣∇￣*)
To the summit. I succeeded to Otowa Fuji climbing.
I am glad that I have similar interests to climb Mt. Fuji.

In the past, could you see Mt. Fuji from here?
Let’s not miss it because there is a small signboard.
2.In front of the immortal gate（不老門） of Gokokuji, the cats were relaxing
People were gathering in the stairs in front of the gate.
Because there were cats.
Did he(she?) have a bright sunshine?
The cats who are one in two(*￣∇￣*)
3.Let’s hold hands with Buddha statue, Jizo-sama, Big Buddha etc. at Gokoku-ji
Gokokuji was founded in 1681 by 5 General Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi.
It is a temple with a long history.
Buddha statue and the important cultural asset of the country “月光殿（Gekkou-den/Moonlight tower）”
As I walk through the path in front of “Six-jizo”
Sculpture is brilliant! There is “Taishido”.
To the left of “Taishido” is “Hitokoto Jizo”.
As its name shows, the Jizo will only make only one wish.
There is also a large statue of Buddha.
4.The main temple of Gokokuji is an important cultural property of the country
The main hall is built in the Edo period and is designated as an important building of the country.
The tongue of the dragon in the lantern in front of the main hall was very great.
I was sent off from an odd eye cat and came home.
In addition to Otowa Fuji’s climb, “Buddha statue” “Jizo-sama” “large statue of Buddha” “Fat relaxing cats”, you can enjoy a Japanese view.
