Reikado霊火堂

Temple

A structure standing near the summit of holy Mt. Misen on Miyajima in Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture. The structure is one of the hall of the Daisho-in Temple, the head temple of Shingon Omuro Buddhism. The hall enshrines an “eternal flame” which has continued to burn ever since 806 when the great priest Kukai meditated here, and in recent years it has become a destination for couples. Water boiled using this flame is said to cure all illnesses and it is visited by large numbers of worshippers year round. There are teacups and ladles for drinking in the hall.

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.
