Ioji Temple医王寺


A Shingon sect temple built in the mountainside in Tomo Town in Fukuyama City. It is said that it was opened by Kobo Daishi in the Heian period. It was destroyed by a fire, but since restored. The main statue is a standing wooden statue of Yakushi Nyorai (Buddha of Healing) and was designated as an Important Cultural Property of the prefecture. It is a perfect viewing spot overlooking the coming and going of boats in the harbor which prospered as a port that relied on the tide.

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.
