Hijiri no Iwaya (Cave)

In the middle of the northern slope of Joroku mountain (560m) is said to be the natural training dojo of monks in training. Shinran, the founder of the Jodo Shinshu sect of Buddhism, and his wife, Eshinni, and their third son, Shinrenbo are said to have gone through training here.
This spot offers a breathtaking view of the Kubiki plains and the Sea of Japan, while the ancient stones remind us of the march of time.
At the lower part of the cave a monument was built to honor Shinran and wife, Eshin-nun and has become a resting place.
