  • This is my favorite place in Hiroshima. No matter what the season, the hike up to the temple is always beautiful. I come here at least once a season and always bring friends from out of town here. The once lush bamboo forest above the temple was destroyed by the floods a couple of summers ago, and is now covered by a huge blue sheet. I hope that one day the bamboo canopy will grow again. The area at the entrance to the temple , right off the parking lot, has beautiful maple trees and even if you have only a few minutes to spare, it is just gorgeous in the Autumn.
  • Great visit. A must when visiting Hiroshima. Very close to the city but feels like you are so far away. A nice 40 minute hike will take you through the property to the ridge to look down towards the city. Many statues and jizos throughout. Great in the fall for the change of leaves. Also a nice cool off in the heat of summer with the tree canopy and running water.
  • This "big" shrine is kinda secret spot for tourist's in Hiroshima. Its not crowded with people and really beautiful. Only bad thing is that it's not easy do get there, you must walk quite a bit but its all worth !
  • I spent a few hours hiking around and sitting in the temples. A very nice place to escape the busy Hiroshima city life and experience a tranquil, natural area. It was not crowded but maybe because it was raining. I walked away feeling that I had gained from the experience. Definitely worth the short train ride from Hiroshima station and hike up the hill.
