The approximately two kilometer road that leads to the mausoleum of the monk Kobo Daishi - who is said to be carrying out his pursuit of knowledge even now - is surrounded by trees that are several hundred years old. There are also over 200,000 memorial towers, including those of feudal lords who made their mark on history. The groups of rocks illuminated with a divine light will surely make you feel a sense of perpetual history.
