Jigoku Nozok (地獄のぞき)

Rock

"This site can be reached by taking the ropeway from JR Hamakanaya Station and getting off at Nokogiriyama Sancho Station, or by following National Route 127 from the Futtsu-Kanaya Interchange on the Futtsu-Tateyama Road. This picturesque destination is located at the top of Mt. Nokogiri at a former quarry where tuff was dug, a type of rock that in ancient times was known as ""Boshu (Chiba) stone."" The site is located on the southern slope of the mountain, an area designated as the grounds of the Nihon-ji Temple. The site consists of rock jutting out over a precipitous cliff created by stone excavation. Visitors can look down 100 meters into the quarry and, with a glance, take in sweeping scenery encompassing Tokyo Bay and, on clear days, Mt. Fuji."

          The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you’ll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Narita - most famous as the home of Narita Airport - is a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
