Grave of Tadano Mitsunaka

Western Area15m

Overview

This grave was built about 700 years ago in the late Kamakura period, and was designated as National Cultural Property and a National Historic Site. At the time the grave was built, this area was still volcanic and desolated, which terrified the travelers. They were so afraid of it that they called this area "A Road to Hell". Stone statues and pagodas were built to ease the anxieties of terrified travelers as well as to pray for their safe journey.
