Senjokaku, Hatsukaichi
(3.7/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • A great demonstration of wooden construction technique performed by the Japanese. Inside the temple there are several inscriptions and historical paintings. The view on the outside as well worth the ticket.

  • Before, without the time came on a day trip to Miyajima where 見renakatta. Which was the case since this time, the stay was wonderful. I walk up the stairs. And into the air is cool and grin and say, very serene place. Also nice views over the Itsukushima-Jinja shrine.
