    Hiroshima Pref. Miharashi Takasakachou Motoyama 22
    A Buddhist temple in Mihara City, Hiroshima Prefecture. This Rinzai sect temple is primarily dedicated to the worship of Shakanyorai and was established in 1397. The main temple hall has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. The temple draws visitors year-round and is often bustling with people searching for tales of history. The temple is especially well known as a place to visit during autumn for its variety of colors of changing leaves.

    We went today and luckily, there will still some beautiful fall colors to enjoy! It was very crowded though so we had to park a little further down the road. The walk was nice though so we didn’t...

    The Fumeikaku building at the Jodo sect Saihoji Temple, is a temple dedicated to Kannon, the Goddess of mercy. It is located within the townscape preservation area in Takehara City, Hiroshima Prefecture. The wooden standing statue of the eleven-headed Kannon, which was the principal image of worship in the Zen temple of Myohoji which used to stand on this site, is enshrined here. The building, built in 1758, is said to have been modeled on Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, and is characterized by the way it has been constructed in the manner of a stage with its double roof of traditional tiles. The view from the Fumeikaku overlooks the town of Takehara and the Seto Inland Sea and is a popular spot frequented by many tourists.

Hiroshima Main Areas

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
