There are two locations, known as Suonada or Saieizan where you can see a series of bizarre-looking rocky peaks of "Kunisaki" that the ancient people saw. What you can see from Suonada is the scenery that Yamato people led by Emperor Keiko watched when crossing the sea, and the view from Saieizan is the scenery that was seen by the monks of the visionary ancestral temple "Takayama", which can be said as the origin of Rokugo Manzan. The scene of a strange-looking cluster of summits rising from the sea of clouds may makes people feel oniic somehow, and perhaps motivated the monks to endure unbearable training sessions, and created the oldest "Mine-iri" pilgrimage in Japan that began with "Kunisaki".
