man-stairs: Chion-in Temple

Chion-in, Kyoto sightseeing
Perhaps you happen to see the same scenery. This is also famous for a shooting place of "The Last Samurai" starred by Tom Cruise and Ken Watanabe.

The steep stairs is called Otoko-zaka, man-stairs. By the stairs is another path, Onna-zaka, woman-slope.

Both are the approaches to the main building. The man-stairs is steep and the woman's is gentle.

I suppose that it is better to use the woman's approach when it snows since the man's is dangerous.
