ANunobiki Kannon

Mt. Nunobiki Shakusonji Temple is famous from the legend of the “Pilgrimage to Zenkoji Drawn by Cattle.” It is a famous Tiantai Buddhist Temple called Gyoki Soken located on the west side of Komoro Station.

BUnno-juku

Unno-Juku was established as an outpost waystation along the Hokkoku Highway in 1625. The Hokkoku Highway (Hokkoku Kaido) was a critical route connecting the Nakasendo and Hokuriku routes, and was used for the transportation of gold from Sado as well as traveled by the Daimyo lords of Hokuriku in their biannual residence in Edo under the Tokugawa Shogunate (known as sankin-kotai). The route experienced frequent exchange with Edo and also saw numerous pilgrims to Zenkoji.

CRaiden Home

The unparalleled sumo wrestler Raiden Tameemon was born in present-day Shigano, Tomi City. His potential for talent was spotted in Urakaze when he was a child and he later entered the Edo sumo world at the age of 17. He was promoted to the heavyweight ozeki class in 1795 where he maintained the top spot over a span of 16 years and 27 locations, chalking up a win ratio of 96.2%.

DManns Wine Komoro Winery

The Manns Winery location features weather conditions that are suited to wine making, with cool air, little rain, and low humidity, giving it a very similar feel to the best wine production centers of France. The wine cellar is located below a spectacular Japanese garden, where the wine ages slowly and matures into outstanding wine.

EKomoro Highlands Art Museum

The Komoro Highlands Art Museum opened in October 2010 with the mission of being the hub of art promotion. The collection features portraits donated as presents from the artist Shiratori Eisetsu of the Japanese Arts Academy as well as works by the forebears — Banka Maruyama, Kokki Miyake, and Shuji Koyama — of Japanese watercolor paints connected to the Komoro Gijuku School.

AKaiko Gardens

Featuring a dual-layer yosemune-zukuri castle gate style (a style in which the roof slants off in four directions), the site was built in the Genna Era from 1614 to 1625. The castle was lost in the great flood of 1742 and rebuilt in the Meiwa Era from 1764 to 1771. The building was built for battle and equipped with battlements and guns along both walls. On the front entrance, there is a large frame that says “Kaiko Gardens” written in the official brush of the Tokugawa Family.

BKomoro Castle Complex

The castle complex marks the remnants of Komoro Castle, also known as Hakutsuru Castle and Suigetsu Castle, a rarity in Japan as an anashiro, or a castle located in a lower position than the surrounding castle town. The gardens are lined with countless cultural facilities including most notably the Fujimura Memorial, the Koyama Kezio Art Museum, Chokokan Museum, Local History Museum, a zoo, and an amusement park.

CNunobiki Kannon

The Sho-Kannon (the bodhisattva, Avalokiteśvara) enshrined in the Kannon Temple Hall of the great wharf is the temple that gave rise to the legend of “Pilgrimage to Zenkoji Drawn by Cattle.” Although the official name of the temple is Shakusonji, today the name Nunobiki Kannon has taken hold. The palace is built out over a cliff, reminiscent of Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto, and has been registered as a National Important Cultural Asset.

DKomoro Gijuku School

This is the study of Kumaji Kimura, the director of Komoro School. Art legends including Fujimura, Banka Maruyama, and Kokki Miyake would speak here together until late at night. Seeing the school conjures up images of Fujimura enjoying the view of his beloved Chikuma River as he trusted his body up against the balustrades on top of the tower.

EKomoro Gijuku School Memorial Museum

The Komoro Gijuku School was a private school opened by the Christian pastor and educator, Kumaji Kimura, in 1893. The building is a moved replica of the main school building and features artifacts from the school’s day on display.
