Misenhondo Hall弥山本堂

Temple

A Buddhist temple in Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture was reportedly founded by Kukai in 806 and became a training hall for Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. The main principal of worship is the bodhisattva called Akasagarbha (Kokuzo Bosatsu), and the bodhisattva is flanked by Acala (Fudo Myoo) and Vaisravana (Bishamonten). The fire lit by Kukai when he was praying is still kept burning, and you can enjoy tea made by the spiritual water boiled in kettles over this fire.

          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.
