⛰️Nijozan Hike: 2 Mountains, historic pagodas & Sumo Museum⛰️
The 2 Summits of Mt. Nijo (O-dake and Me-dake) are a prominent part of the mountain range that divides Osaka and Nara Prefectures. They’re also a fun and beautiful hike!
After conquering these two summits, and enjoying the views over two prefectures, we will visit the historic Taima-dera Temple, the ONLY temple dating from the 8th century to have both of its original pagodas left intact! It’s also home to some other unique and historic architecture.
Finally, enter an authentic sumo arena (built to authentic specifications anyway) for a fun bout with your friends and fellow hikers.
This will be a big day but one we are confident will delight any and all who participate.
Bring a lunch.
Bring appropriate shoes for hiking and appropriate clothes for the weather.
