Senjokaku, Hatsukaichi

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.

  • And view of Itsukushima-Jinja shrine, a splendid building is a majestic, is built by Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Loose five-story pagoda and sea views, enjoyed a long time. Very beautiful photo No.

  • The location went without expecting too much, but feeling better than expected. Located on a hill, commanding well sitting on the veranda views, relaxing. From impulse purr like sprawl. Hanging the transom and its construction that there is anything but the unfinished picture bitterly and taste. Admission is 100 yen to 16:30.
