Sannõ 山王

Postby DGA » Mon Dec 12, 2016 12:52 am

I'm looking for knowledge on the deity Sannõ ( 山王) beyond this article:

Any insights and/or resources will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hiei-san is... well, you have to see and feel it to "get" it. I'm delighted you get to make pilgrimage there. I am eager to return myself.

I was invited to stay at the hotel that is maybe a hundred meters from the Konpon Chudo for one night.

It's not hard to access Hiei-san from Kyoto, though. It takes me longer to drive to work each day than it took us to take a public bus from Kyoto train station to Enryakuji.

No problem. Maybe a separate thread on "traveling to Hiei san" is appropriate. I'm eager to encourage anyone who is traveling to Japan to pay Hiei san a visit. It is its own thing. I know of no other place that feels like it.
