Look just above the roofline of the temple and you’ll see 4 parked cars.
Neither the temple, nor the hillside, nor the cars can be seen from the vacant, rural road that runs past this site in a sparsely-populated part of the island. To get there, you have to turn onto a little dirt path that most people would never notice, then go down a hill and around a corner. When you get to the padlocked gate, you can still see nothing. If you know the combination to the lock, you can pull onto the property, go around a corner and BOOM, there it is. Cathy Fleck met the woman who did the research, purchased the land, then cleared away decades of dense jungle growth to reveal the zig-zag path up the hillside and the perfectly intact, old Japanese shrines. Cathy knows the gate code because she takes care of the organization’s Facebook page.
