    »Mount Osore

    Mount Osore (Osorezan) which literally means Mount Fear is one of the three sacred mountains in Japan. Filled with local folklore, its eerie landscape adds to the mystic of this caldera volcano. It is known to be the gathering place of the spirits of the dead and is Hell's entrance. The sulphuric fumes fuels its underworld overtone. This site is a contrast to the nearby beautiful Lake Usori which the souls have to cross. Spiritual mediums called Itako gather here during the grand festivals in autumn and summer in a temple located on the mountain. Visitors can freely avail of the four hot springs in the vicinity. It is said that Jizo guards Mount Osore and is known as the guardian Bodhisattva of children. Jizo statues are a common sight throughout the region and mourners from all across the country come with presents in remembrance of their dead children.
