About the place

Hieizan Sakamoto , lit. the base of Mt Hiei, is a quite small temple village about 1,350 years old ( well that is the last temple anniversary I went to . It basically was a town build for retired monks from the Enryakuji temple complex further up the mountain ( 15 temples there ) UNESCO site , lots of Hiking ( something I do not do )
