The well known Chichibu 34 Kannon Temples Pilgrimage has one secret up its sleeve: between Temple 26 and Temple 27, hidden in the mountains, is the lovely secret Kannon Hall of Temple 26 called Iwaidou. If you walk the pilgrimage, don’t skip this, it is very beautiful and a lovely hike too with the possibility to hike from Iwaidou directly to the Giant Kannon statue overlooking Temple 27.
