The only Buddhist temple in Nonogawa sits at the top of Mt. Yaritake. It's one of the most popular tourist spots in the river valley. Be prepared for a hike up 24 flights of stairs. Hand rails line each flight. Visitors may purchase water, snacks, talismans, and souvenirs at the shop. The temple is not handicapped accessible, due to its location. So, a little shop at the bottom is available to accommodate those who cannot reach the top and to provide water for those making the journey.
