  • Spring cherry blossoms, summer green, fall leaves are beautiful. Flows through the air like the otherworldly here only. The long stair which also followed by a road.

  • This place was amazing. It felt way off of the beaten path. When we were there we only saw one person the whole time we were there. A bit of a trek to get there by bus, but manageable. Beautiful setti...  more »
  • It is the third stop along the JR Kabe line from Hiroshima. At Mitaki station a short walk uphill will take you to the entrance of the area. You will find few tourists. Only those who stay in Hiroshim...  more »

  • The most peaceful and tranquil temple I have been to In Japan. Absolutely beautiful
  • My favorite shrine in Japan and very different from all the others. Here you find the Buddha in all his forms and well as other spectacular statuary. The site in its modern iteration is designed to make you feel the pain and healing after the a-bomb. Continue to hike up the mountain behind the site for a spectacular view of the entire city. (For the best view, continue to follow the trail to the right. It's about 40 minutes to the top and some parts are a bit steep.)
  • Superb. A must see if you have ANY spiritual sense.
  • Quiet and beautiful. A beautiful wooded hike here next to a mountain stream.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Hiroshima

The majority of places to stay in Hiroshima concentrate in the areas surrounding the train station, the memorial museum and park, and a couple of main boulevards. Here you can find basic, comfortable, and clean hostels, dozens of mid-range business hotels, and a couple of pricier four- and five-star international chains, all of which offer easy access to any of the sights in this compact city. For an adventurous and very affordable overnight stay in Hiroshima, you can even sleep in private pods attached to the train station's south side.
