I visited the momijidani paark before going up Mt Misen on the ropeway.
We hiked to the summit of Mt Misen and then down the other side to Daishoin temple.
I was also able to do something I have been wanting to do for a very long time, walk out to the torii!! I even got to touch it! The water had gone down right at the same time we had come down from the mountain.
It was such a wonderful day and even though my legs are still recovering from all the stairs on the mountain, I really want to do it again!
