It is not sightseeing temple,

There is Shoten-do hall behind Haiden hall.
The God shoten-do hall people not into it.
Only priest can into it.

Please you play “Coming the Money”
Many business men come here and play,
from long ago.
I bought a candor and incense stick.
When you light a candle, please you use this fire.
Because we said,
if you give the fire from another candors
you get the bad karma from it.
You can see the
Buddha statue and small hall on the rock.
Before we could visit it but now Rock falls happen.

The staff old men said,
“Oh NO” and he said,
“Please you pray inside”
He was very kind.
