Daifuku-ji temple of Shingon sect in Funakata is also knowns as “the cliff temple” by locals. The main image is the eleven headed Goddess of Mercy (Kannon) carved directly on the cliff. Its origin dates back to 717 when Priest Gyoki visited the site and prayed for the safety of marine traffic. In 1715, it was consolidated as a peaked roof building temple. Many visit this unique temple as the third temple of Awa Kannon Pilgrimage, or to enjoy the splendid view of Tateyama Bay.
Shiroyama Park is located on the hill where Lord Satomi once built a castle on top in the 15th Century. Today, the park houses Tateyama City Museum, Tateyama Castle (inside is Hakkenden Museum), a tea house, a peacock aviary, a playground for children, and a lawn yard. Along the several trails are planted flowers of seasons, such as narcissuses, camellias, cherry blossoms, azaleas, and hydrangeas, just to name a few. In the early April, the park is bustled with locals and tourists for cherry blossom viewing. The panoramic view from the top include the whole city, Tateyama Bay, and Mt. Fuji occasionally.
