Senjokaku, Hatsukaichi

(3.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Located where the tower is slightly higher and you can see with this place looking at the scenery is awesome too. Get a glimpse of many of them, even on the inside.

  • 千疊閣本身的建築除了大之外沒有很驚人之處,但160日幣的門票真心便宜,就在嚴島神社旁邊但參觀的人卻不多,從上面可以鳥瞰碼頭和嚴島神社,風景真心不錯! 五重塔就在出口處,看完可以直接過去喔~
