Takkoku-iawaya is a temple painted in red located under the cliff of 35meters high 6 km to southwest of Chuson-ji.

There is a huge Statue of Buddha inscribed on the polished cliff, and it is so quiet because of few visitors,

so it is an out‐of‐the‐way place.

Though tours buses via Motsu-ji Temple arrive here, cycling in the rural atmosphere is pleasant, too.
