  • 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.
  • 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.
