  • Beautiful settings, trees, and flowers. Everywhere you look is an interesting and pretty sight. There is also a marble hill associated with the temple which is very different from anything else we saw...  more »
  • Is good to visit the Temple have shimanami-Kaido ikuchi Island, but I works of art than a temple. I was surprised because, 45 years ago, went from Onomichi by ferry which is now connected by a bridge and can be reached easily by car. Success during the 45 years ago, a young, artistic places like this was made later that felt strange, but we felt the greatness of Kozo, slaughtered.

  • Amazing Shrine, and hour is not near enough time.
  • What it lacks in history (and perhaps authenticity, given that it's a businessman's pet project) it makes up for in its variety and aesthetic. Beautiful views, grand architecture (the underground "hells" especially) and modern detail make it well worth a visit. Especially recommended if you've been around Japan and feel like you never need to see another temple - this one is something a bit different.
  • Other than the temple, there is an additional sightseeing spot up to the hill, heart of spirits. I like it.
  • Kinda expensive to get in, but the old house to the left after you enter (and possibly up the first set of stairs) is worth the tour. The guides have an English version of facts and are very friendly. Also, be sure to go to the very, very top. You'll see an elevator somewhere. You can use the stairs or the lift. Follow the path to the top and there's a garden of marble and at the very top, it's a marble mountain land. Worth checking out!
  • Beautiful and full of different things to see. The asking price is steep but well worth it!
