Kasamatsu Park

Amanohashidate-kasamatsu Park has long been known as a great spot overlooking Amanohashidate and it is located to the north side of Amanohashidate at a height of 130 meters above sea level. The view from this park looks like a dragon rising to the sky and it is considered a very auspicious scene in Japan. Additionally, here, it is possible to enjoy famous “Matanozoki” viewing. “Matanozoki” is the way turning your back to Amanohashidate and bending down and looking it from between your legs. Viewed in the Matanozoki way, the sky and the earth look upside down, making Amanohashidate look just like a bridge across the sky. On a side note, there is also a restaurant with a good view at this park!
Buses for Nariaiji Temple, the 28th temple of the 33 Temples of Kansai Kannon Pilgrimage, depart from here as well.

Let’s try “Kawarake Nage”
~Kawarake throwing~

Kawarake nage

What is “Kawarake Nage”?

Kawarake Nage is one thing we want you to remember and try at the Kasamatsu Park. Kawarake Nage refers to throwing an unglazed or sunbaked earthen dish from a high place, wishing protection from evil, fulfilling your wish and so on. Here in Kasamatsu Park, if you throw Kawarake and it can pass through Chie-no-Wa, it is said that a fortune will knock at your door.

The Chie-no-wa originally refers to an unusually shaped stone lantern that stands next to Chion-ji Temple. During the Edo period, the rings were lit with lights that were used as lanterns for safe navigation of ships coming and going the Monju Suido (waterway). The legend says that if you pass through “Chieno-wa” three times, you will receive Monju’s wisdom. The one in Kasamatsu Park was built modeled after the Chie-no-wa in Monju to share its good luck.
*Please never throw things towards the genuine circle of wisdom. It is a valuable historic artifact.

Let’s try!

1. How to buy “Kawarake”
Put 200yen into the payment box and take three Kawarake out from the shelf. It is self-service.
Note;1000yen note cannot be used because it frequently clogs in the coin slot. The bill changer is just your left as soon as you enter our souvenir shop.

2. How to play
Throw the Kawarake aiming at the center of the “Chie-no-Wa” as in the photo.
*Please do not throw valuables.
