Many people come from all over the country and abroad every year in Misen, which as towers behind to protect Itsukushima Shrine.
It became an object of mountain religion since the Heian period, and in 806 Kobo Daishi Kukai opened Misen, and it has been respected by the people as a mountain for religious climbing. As you walk through the Daisho-in course, you can see from the majestic views of the temples, shrines, and Daisho-in on the left and right of the stairs.
Near the summit, large strangely shaped rocks and shrines and temples are lined up, and from the observation deck renewed in 2013, you can see the spectacular view of Seto Inland Sea. It is the best to have a lunch box at the top of the superb view.
Hiwatari Shinki, held every year on April 15th and November 1st at Daisho-in, burns the green leaves of firewood with the “relentless fire” that has burned since Kobo Daishi’s training on Misen. It is an event that crosses over it barefoot.
