3Stone Stairway on Mt. Haguro

Hagurosan Ishidan

The 2,446-step stone stairway stretches roughly 2 km from the Gate of Dual Deities to the summit. It took the 50th head monk, Tenyū, 13 full years to construct. It takes about one hour to walk up to the summit. There are 33 engravings on the steps, and it is said that if you can find all of them your wishes will come true.
