Zenkoji temple 善光寺

This temple is located in the streets near Nagano Station. The Zenkoji temple has the worship method of "OKAIDAN-MEGURI" (a charge occurs) which walks along Hondo's underground. 


There is no light in the passage of the underground.  Therefore, you have to walk in true darkness. You can walk along the dark load which amounts to about 45 meters, touching a wall by your hand. When you progress to the half of a dark load, there is the lock of a heavenly door. 


You have to find this lock only by groping. Probably, you can go to Heaven great to your postmortem, if you can find it. I wish you good luck.
