DETAILED ITINERARY
MAIN DESTINATION: Yamadera

A scenic temple: Yamadera Private Package Tour

Yamadera is a scenic temple located in the mountains northeast of Yamagata City. The temple grounds extend high up a steep mountainside, from where there are great views down onto the valley. The temple was founded over a thousand years ago in 860 as a temple of the Tendai sect under the official name Risshakuji. Its popular name, Yamadera, literally means “mountain temple” in Japanese.

The base of the mountain is located about a five minute walk from the Yamadera train station, and there are dozens of shops and restaurants that cater to the temple’s many visitors. There is also a small visitor center just across the bridge along the way from the station to the temple.

To reach the upper area of the temple grounds, visitors must hike up a trail that leads up the mountainside. The ascent takes about 30 minutes and begins after the Sanmon Gate, located a couple minutes’ walk from the main hall, where a small entry fee must be paid.

 

Entrance fee (separate from tour price, to be purchased on the spot)
Adults: JPY300 per person
