Abuto Kannon (Abuto Goddess of Mercy)阿伏兎観音

Temple

At this Rinzai-sect Myoshin school Buddhist Temple in Fukuyama City, the principal image of worship is the Eleven-faced Kannon. Said to have been built by Emperor Kazan in 992, the temple has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan. The crimson lacquered Kannon Hall standing above the Seto Inland Sea and the rough rock face gives both a sense of thrill and picturesque beauty. It is said that praying at the temple will give mothers easy childbirth or bless couples with children.

          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.
