Travel Guide - Mount Nokogiri-yama / Nihon-ji Temple

InformationInformation

Nokogiri-yama stands steeply on the west coast of Boso Peninsula. The name mountain, which means "Mountain of Sawteeth" came from its jagged rock face. Overlooking from the peak of the mountain is the endless Tokyo Bay. Tourists can take the cable car to reach the "Peep Hell" at the peak. When looking down from the steep cliffs, a shudder of horror will sweep you over.
The entire mountain is the grounds of Nihon-ji Temple.
