To reach this place, it takes a bit of effort, especially because it's not a place that is very accessible, and it takes a walk. The environment is very beautiful place, especially with the natural beauty as well as the existence of a temple to obtain peace for pengunjungnyna, especially those who want to worship with the way Japanese people.

I am a college professor and took a group of students to all the wonderful sites of Hiroshima. This was my favorite. The natural beauty was unmatched. It was a wonderful place to do a little natural history, see some birds, hear a few frogs all in a magically land of intimate shrines. The Mitaki is the best preserved of... More

A great location in a forest built around 3 waterfalls with a scenic walk through a mature bamboo forest. Worth spending a few hours here relaxing and taking in the atmosphere.

This place is so underrated in my opinion. I went there just a few months ago after having lived in Hiroshima for 7 years. Its a great spot for short hikes and something meaningful. Theres a cute cat in the temple so be nice if you bump into the lil soul because it does not take too well to visitors.... More

We were told my the chef at our hotel to see this temple as it is more local than not. Be prepared for a good steady walk up a hill from the train station to get to the temple, and then more of a walk around once you reach the temple area. So many old statues and shrines and so... More

Beautiful setting all the way up to the castle! This time of year the trees are turning colors. The waterfalls and stream make it so peaceful! It would be better to have someone with you that can read Japanese or knows all about it to explain everything, I wished i had known what all I was looking at. But this... More

If you want to get into nature while visiting a temple, get out to Mitaki temple. Not a common visitor attraction, and breathtakingly beautiful. If you are a hiker, bring your boots and take the trails a bit further up the mountain. The small tea shop on the grounds has a lovely mochi/tea set, or if you need to cool... More

We highly recommend a visit to. Mitaki temple for half a day. It is a 7 minute journey (2 stops) from Hiroshima station on the JR Kabe line. Very useful instructions are given in the review below by Muskietto. When you get to the cemetery on your right, keep walking up the main road until you get to an obvious... More

If I had only 4 hours to visit Hiroshima that is where I would go. It is a temple in the middle of the nature , in complete harmony with its surroundings. You could say the nature is the temple. It is also a big cemetery. It is 7 minutes by train from Hiroshima yet workds away. Beautiful, quiet and... More

Such a lovely, peaceful spot so close to Hiroshima yet a world away. Take the train then walk uphill through the local houses til you come to the temple precincts. Wonderful statues, pathways and buildings.Spend a few hours of quiet and tranquility. The people in the tourist info office didn't seem to know much about this place, therefore it doesn't... More
