The whole area of the temple is the place we love. It looks like from mysterious movies - the temples, graves and paths. Almost no people makes it more moody.

Well worth a visit! A serene and peaceful place to contemplate the horror of nuclear war. Surroundings are superb. We didn't walk to the top of the mountain (we are older travellers who walked many kms to get here), but spoke to someone who did...More

The water from 3 waterfalls in this lovely temple is used during the annual ceremony honoring the atomic bomb victims. Surmounted by trees at the top of a hill, the temple feels like a forest oasis. A temple has stood at this location since 809,...More

Worth the trip if you like hiking. To get there you need to take the blue JR line towards Kabe(可部) from Hiroshima(広島), and alight from Mitaki(三滝). Cross the station railway barricades to the housing blocks(you might want to rely on Google Maps for this). Enjoy...More

Mitaki-dera is a historic Japanese temple in Hiroshima city. It’s definitely worth to visit. There are many sculptures, temples and good spots to see. It is recommended to go in Spring or Autumn.

Mitaki Temple is a great spot to enjoy fall colors. Highly recommend adding this temple to your Hiroshima itinerary. You will not regret it. It’s beautiful any time of the year, but it’s really gorgeous in the fall. Some of the trees are just changing...More

We loved our visit here. We weren't able to hike up to the top but we saw all three waterfalls. A lovely place. We walked from the local station and should have taken a cab up. The walk down was easier.

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 setting, tons of hidden gem...More

I agree that between one and two hours would be good. If you are concerned about how to get there by public transport, I suggest that you take a taxi and ask the driver to return to collect you at a given time. Don't short... More

The hiking route might be closed at 03:00 PM (15:00), perhaps to deter hikers to miss the temple gate closure time which is at 05:00 PM (17:00).
