I LOVE this trail! Head out of the Jinmuji Station, make a left and keep the tracks on your left as you walk to the second traffic light. Make a right at the light and follow the road past the school and past the senior center. The trail entrance is behind the senior center.
That's one big Buddha! It's hidden on the trail, but if you know where to look, it's a great find!
That elderly gentleman and another guy were preparing to climb.
