In Muromachi period, Sesson Shukei(1504-1589), a painting priest, used this hermitage as the foothold for his activities during his old age. No sound except the murmur of the wind can be heard. Tomb of natural stone, countless bamboos are all quietly breathing.
Location: Miharu town, Fukushima Pref, Japan
