Mitaki Temple三瀧寺


A Buddhist temple in Nishi Ward, Hiroshima City located halfway up Mt. Mitaki is part of the Koyasan Shingon-shu grouping of temples. Said to have been founded in 809 by Kukai, there are three waterfalls with different streams located on the grounds. The two-story pagoda erected as a memorial to victims of the atomic bombs was transferred from Wakayama’s Hirohachiman-Jinja shrine and has been designated an Important Cultural Property of Japan. Inside the pagoda is another Important Cultural Property of Japan, a wooden statue depicted the seated form of the Amitabha (Amidanyorai) Buddha. The temple is well known as a place to see cherry blossoms in the spring and autumn colors in the fall, and there is always a great turn out of visitors.

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.
