  • 541

The place that prospered as a starting point of sacred Mt,Hakusan where Heisenji Hakusan Shrine in Katsuyama-city, Fukui greeted founder 1300. It was a religious city largest in Japan where armed monk of 8,000, house of monk of 6000 formed a line once.
I attract attention now as a cedar grove and a mysterious spot among green moss. As for the moss in particular, it is claimed to be beautiful so as not to be inferior to moss temple "Saiho-ji Temple" of Kyoto. Each of the approximately 200 kinds of kinds of moss opening in front of a front shrine is said and pleases the tourist who came.
In the cedar grove, a lot of huge trees do not rarely fall down by wind and rain. I took it which a new cedar began to increase life by out of the stump of the cedar which fell down with a photograph.
