Mt. Kinkeisan

金鶏山(平泉町)

Mt. Kinkeisan is a beautiful conic mountain with an altitude of 98.6 m located between Hiraizumi Station and Chusonji Temple on National Road 4. From the top, there is a panoramic view of Hiraizumi,

Mt. Kinkeisan, or “golden chicken mountain,” is considered an important remnant upon which Hiraizumi’s urban development was based. There appears to have been at least nine sutra mounds where Buddhist sutras were buried at the mountaintop, but the site was randomly dug and badly disrupted in 1930, and details have remained a mystery. Artifacts such as a sutra container made of copper are displayed at the Tokyo National Museum and Motsuji Temple.
