This is a temple located in Senkoji Park in Onomichi City. According to temple legend it was established in 806, by Kobo Daishi. The red painted main hall is an unusual structure called a stage building, and the building, together with the bell tower, symbolizes Onomichi. It is believed that once a jewel of shining light was placed on the big rock beside the main hall called “Tama no Iwa” and this illuminated the sea. From inside the precincts you can enjoy a magnificent view overlooking the city of Onomichi and the Seto Inland Sea.

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.
