Outline Inside of Boso Peninsula rises Mount Nokogiri (a saw), whose ridgeline resembles sawblade teeth, with the altitude of 329 meters (1,079ft), which is literally called, "Saw Mountain".
The marks of quarrying Boshu stone from Ero-era to the end of Showa-era, still remain in the north side, and there is an ancient temple, "Nihon-ji" (Nihon-temple) on the south side slope.
There are 2,639 stone steps in the precincts and it takes about one hour and a half to look all around.

The highlight of this place is "Jigoku Nozoki" (View of Hell) on the summit. On top of quarry wall has a view spot, set up vertically with the height of 80 meters (262ft). Even though it has an iron railing, you will freeze from fear.
There, you can get the full view of Kanto region with Tokyo Bay under your eyes.
Why don't you visit the large Daibutsu (a statue of Buddha), amongst all the Buddha figures covered on rock faces, after you enjoy viewing all the fantastic scenes?
