5-story pagoda (gojyuunotou, 五重塔) by foliosus, via Flickr. A path of 2,466 stone steps leads to the summit of Mount Haguro amidst 600-year-old sugi trees leading past the famous Gojū-tō (五重塔) five story pagoda and numerous shrines. The steps and the pagoda are listed as National Treasures. The Sanzan-Gosai-den temple (三山合祭殿) at the summit venerates the spirits of all three mountains. In addition to religious pilgrims, travellers often stay at the Saikan temple lodgings.
I loved my visit to England in the late 90's. My favorite moment by far, was when I saw the actual, "Sherwood Forest" sign. (Disney's Robinhood is a childhood favorite!)
