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

It doesn't take a while to come and visit this temple, so I recommend to come because it's really beautiful. The access is from yokogawa where you can arrive with JR Kabe line from Hiroshima station or you can take the chance to ride the Hiroden (Hiroshima Electric Railway) n. 7 or 8, just 150 yen the ride. From yokogawa... More

I had read about this temple a couple of years ago but did not have the time to visit then. This time we made a special effort to put time aside for the visit. A short train ride to Mitaki station then a 20 minute walk up the hill to the temple. We took a walking trek into the surrounding... More

This wonderful temple area seems to not be on the tourist radar but it is definitely worth visiting. The temple grounds are located on the side of Mt Mitaki with beautiful trees, waterfalls, stair, statues and buildings. I'm not sure I have ever experienced any place so tranquil and green. I personally found Hiroshima to be one of my favorite... More

This was just a great half day or so trip from Hironshima where we are staying for an extended period. Just two stops on the train and a nice (acttually kind of strenuous) uphill walk to the temple area, and you are surrounded by beautiful quiet waterfalls and greenery and the nicest pagoda you would ever want to see. Transplanted... More
