  • When I went to visit the temple didn't know it was so beautiful! I was surprised with the beauty, peace and care. I love visiting temples in Japan even not Buddhism or Shinto, but are so beautiful, that bring peace and joy to the eye and the heart that will always!!! This temple is very special, stay on the mountain are Mitaki several temples together, all within a wonderful vegetation, well cared for and kept impressing. Worth visiting! Has parking and bathrooms, there's no cost to enter the mountain, only in a few temples. It is a wonderful place that worth a visit!

  • Devoid of the usual heaving throng of tourists, this temple appears to be an eerily well-kept, secret. Tons of aged, scenic Buddhist monuments, memorials, babbling brooks, and pleasing, yet unpretenti...  more »
  • Mitaki Temple is from Hiroshima train station is station 3 mitaki station on the Kabe line. You can arrive in a 20-minute walk from here. Hiroshima City, even and not compared with slightly lower temperatures, so as in the summer. Since a lot of places in the Valley around mitaki-Dera Temple of Crystal quartz crystal dig can enjoy.

  • 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.
  • Just like the atmosphere of Kyoto's Sagano, Arashiyama area. In the harmony of the foliage and temples, hermitages and feel moved by. Also as the name suggests some falls are beautiful. Easier to climb to Soko mountain, a peak overlooking the city and Mt. Misen, ninoshima Island, succession on Etajima island. City of Hiroshima is on the State in sediments of the Ota River, clearly.
