A carpet of greenery in spring and summer and a golden covering of Japanese pampas grass on the slopes in the fall are features of the Soni Highlands that spread out from the foot of Mt. Kuroso. The starry sky over the plains is unmissable. The Kuruson Buddha is one of the seven previous incarnations of Buddha up to the Gautama Buddha and Mt. Kuroso's name comes from the fact that people worshipped the Kuruson Buddha at this mountain. The huge 1 Sm Kuroso Stone Buddha is carved into the cliff at the foot of the mountain. It is said to have been a place of worship for mountain ascetics as the Fudo Waterfall is halfway up the mountain.
