I am going on a 1-week photography trip to Tokyo. I have photographed the lovely magaibutsu Buddhas of Usuki a couple of years ago, which turned out great. Now, I have heard of a cliff carved Buddha in the Chiba area at Nihonji Temple. I have a JR pass, and wondered how I can get to this temple to photograph this Buddha and the carved Jizo. Can someone confirm that the closest station is Hamakanaya? And the cableway will be operational in early April? I need to visit the temple for a few hours and then get back on the train to go see a concert in Chiba town. Thanks!
Re: Nihonji Temple
You can take the JR Uchibo line from Chiba Stn to Hamakanaya (79min according to hyperdia.com) and take the nokogiriyama ropeway after that
According to this http://www.keisei.co.jp/group/nokogiri-mt/eigyo.htm
It's open in early april from 9am to 5pm
