Senjokaku, Hatsukaichi

3.8
#4 of 18 in Historic Sites in Hatsukaichi
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Take in the aging and evocative structure of Senjokaku, roughly the size of 1,000 tatami mats. Commissioned in 1587 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi (one of the three unifiers of Japan), for the purpose of chanting Buddhist sutras to the fallen heroes of war, the building was incomplete when its commissioner passed away, and remains in a sparse state to this day. Though unfinished and lacking a proper entrance, it remains unspoiled, featuring original artworks and decorations on the ceilings and walls. A visit to Senjokaku represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hatsukaichi family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • That is not done, since it was free? And a tile roof tiles into gold leaf, "King" is truly senjojiki or overwhelming. Indeed, it was donated by Toyotomi Hideyoshi and satisfied! I want to learn more from.

Where to stay in Hatsukaichi

With its historic temples and shrines, scenic coastal areas, and wealth of inland trekking potential, Hatsukaichi has a number of accommodations to complement the vast array available in neighboring Hiroshima. Many visitors do decide to stay in the larger city to the east, but if you're particularly set on staying in Hatsukaichi, you won't be disappointed by the choice. Look close to the sea for the more upmarket rooms offering views of the bay, and on some of the narrower side streets for budget-friendly guesthouses and hostels. The same goes for the island just offshore. With its shrine and history, many choose to stay on Itsukushima, close to the Miyajima shrine.
