Plan description

Founded over one thousand years ago in 860, ‘Yamadera’ (lit. mountain temple) is a picturesque temple complex located high up on a steep mountainside. The view from the pagoda of ‘Risshakuji’ temple at the very top is breathtaking, looking out over the neighbouring mountains and village.
On this tour, experience the serenity of Yamadera all to yourself! Visit early in the morning when the air is fresh and the staircase devoid of crowds! Climb the 1000 stone steps to the top of the temple complex and reward yourself with a delicious breakfast of ‘onigiri’ rice balls made from local rice as you take in the panoramic views. Test your foodie skills by comparing to brands of local rice ‘Tsuyahime’ (lit. ‘shining princess’) and ‘Yukiwakamuru’ (lit. ‘young samurai of the snow’).
After breakfast, choose to stay back and explore the temple area and surrounding nature, or if staying at nearby Tendo Onsen, head back to your lodging in time for the breakfast buffet (who doesn’t like second breakfast?).
Please note this tour involves a fair amount of physical activity! Come ready for some exercise and wear comfortable shoes/clothing for hiking.

Enjoy the fresh morning air and beautiful views all to yourself

Enter the ‘Risshakuji’ Temple complex. Usually, the temple grounds are open from 08:00, but on this tour you can enjoy special access from 7am. Enjoy the serenity and fresh mountain air all to yourself!
