Jodo-ji Temple浄土寺


This is one of the leading ancient temples of the Chugoku region. Located in Onomichi City, Hiroshima, it is the head temple of the Senyuji school of the Shingon sect. It is said to have been founded by Prince Shotoku in 616 as is known as the temple where Ashikaga Takauji prayed for success in battle. The main temple building, with its Irimoya-zukuri (formal tile hip-and-gable roof) and Hongawara-buki (tile roofing in which round and square tiles are laid down alternately) and the two-storied pagoda are registered as National Treasures, and the main gate and temple hall containing the image of Amitabha are Important Cultural Properties. In fact, the temple has such high historical value that the entire grounds are designated as a National Treasure. The inner shrine at the top of the mountain offers a spectacular view of the townscape of Onomichi and the sea.

          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.
