Yamamoto Fudouson Temple is located in the southern west of Tanagura Town. This temple is quite famous for autumn colors. Although Sakura trees had not bloomed yet, I enjoyed the great nature here.

The most famous spot of Yamamoto Fudouson Temple is the steep stairs over there.

It was more scary to walk down the stairs. I really want you to come here to feel it by yourself.

I found a riverside with three small waterfalls in the inner area. The water was so transparent that I could clearly see even the bottom of the river. Yamamoto Fudouson Temple is such a nice place with great nature.

By the way, I found some rare plants on the way. This is Bracken, or Warabi in Japanese.

And this cute flower is Dogtooth violet, or Katakuri in Japanese. Indeed, I saw the flower of Katakuri for the first time in my life. It was so cute!

I will be at Tanagura Town again some day for sure.
