上之國Monju / Kaminokuni Monju


Kaminokuni Monju (Kaminokuni Town) is a road station on route 228 on a cliff facing the Sea of Japan. A big rock named Monju Iwa is in the sea just 20 meters off the cliff. Monju stands for an incarnation of Buddha, which takes charge in wisdom. From the road station, there is a short path to the tip of the cliff. Visitors can admire the panoramic view there. The path is called Kami-no Michi - Kami is deity in Japanese. According to a myth, a deity of sea called Ryujin travels the path to see a deity of mountain.
