Charms of Minamiboso (29) Oyama Fudo

(29) 大山不動

Up on the hill of Oyama area, Kamogawa City, Oyama Fudo gives a great view looking down the beautiful rice fields and houses below. The Temple once belonged to Tendai sect, was connected to Shintoism and animism, and flourished as a training center for monks. The dragon carvings in Fudo Hall are by Nami no Ihachi, the local artisan from the Edo period, and are designated as an cultural asset by Chiba Prefecture. It can be a nice place to visit in an autumn afternoon.
