Overview of your Shimizu tour:

Minobu is regarded as one of the holiest Buddhist places in Japan. In 1281, the priest of Nichiren founded Kuonji temple in this secluded mountainous village. Since then his teaching has been widely accepted by people and spread over the country. Even today, so many monks are practicing and millions of faithfuls come to pray there. In the temple precinct, you can see the gorgeous entrance gate, the five-storied pagoda, Okuno-in (penetralia) on the hilltop reached by the rope-way. Also fun to walk the street in the town, which remains traditional scenes and mood. Additionally the tour includes lunch of Shojin cuisine (Buddhist vegetarian diet) at the Kakurinbo temple. It takes 1. 5 hours from Shimizu by railways and taxi. The train runs through the mountains of beautiful scenery.
