There are many sacred places in Yamaguchi Prefecture.
This time I will introduce the sacred place of Shimonoseki-shi.
Gezan（華山） is the highest mountain of the Toyoura Mountain Range and has long been counted as a sacred mountain of Nagato’s country.
Where is it?
Gezan is a mountain of 713.3m above sea level in Shimonoseki-shi in the western part of Yamaguchi prefecture.
The view from the mountaintop is a scenic spot overlooking the Sea of Japan, Genkai Nada and Seto Inland Sea.

At the foot of the Gezan there is Tokunen Waterfall（徳仙の滝）.
Tokunen Waterfall is located in Jinjyo temple（神上寺） called Koyasan in the west.

A word at the end.
You can go to Gezan by car.
