Kaiunto Pagoda, Tenneiji Temple天寧寺海雲塔


This three-storied pagoda is located on the grounds of the Soto sect of Zen Buddhism temple Tenneiji, which is said to have been founded by Fumyo Kokushi (high priest) due to contributions from Ashikaga Yoshiakira. It was five stories when the temple was established in 1388, but the top two stories were supposedly removed in 1692. It has been designated as an Important Cultural Property and is also known as Kaiunto. The harmonious scenery created by the pagoda, the town, and the sea is gorgeous, and it is one of Onomichi’s most well-known sights. The nearest station is Onomichi Station.

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.
