Ooiwasan Nissekiji Temple大岩山 日石寺
"This temple, a 15-minute drive from Hokuriku Expressway's Tachikawa Interchange, was built by Gyoki in 725. Part of the Tateyama mountain worship faith, it had become a large, well-known temple with 21 shrines and 60 monks by its peak. The temple declined after being set ablaze by Uesugi forces and losing many of its treasures and records to the fire. However, the temple hall was later rebuilt and served as the as the family temple for many generations of the Maeda Clan. The temple grounds contain a great deal of sights to see. These include Buddhist carvings and statues such as the Oiwa Nissekiji Sekibutsu, a nationally designated historic site, and the Oiwa Nissekiji Magaibutsu, an important cultural property. The temple, which venerates Fudo Myoo as the main object of worship, is beloved by the nickname ""Oiwasan no Ofudosan."" "

Toyama Main Areas
Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
