ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Torokawa-Inari Shrine had been worshiped for sericulture. There are a lot of huge rocks on the premises, which were formed with sediment of debris-avalanche in the past, and are used for small branch shrines. Totally 13 Jizos (guardian deity for children and travelers) are placed along the walking path from Torokawa Inari to Torokawa Valley, and the end point where Fudomyo (Acala) is placed is the Torokawa waterfall. It takes almost one hour from the entrance of the walking path to the waterfall and back, but the path in the valley is a little steep because it is selected as best 100 secluded places in Japan.
