There are a lot to see in this place. It is a long way up the mountain to reach the top, so you can spend a couple of hours wandering around. Make sure to visit everywhere. I believe the best time to visit is a cherry blossom season and late autumn to enjoy red maple leaves. There is a lovely... More

It's a beautiful sightseeing site to visit during autumn. Basically it's just like most temple in Japan, but the scenic during autumn is amazing. When the leaf changing color, plus the scenic of a temple.

A perfectly-tended warren of old Buddhist statues placed thoughtfully amongst glorious foliage. Just 3 stops from Hiroshima (JR on platform 4) and you are a world away from the bustle. No food nearby. You can drink water from the stream if you are feeling slightly irreverent! Moderate walk up from the station then stairs at the Temple itself.

We spent our last morning in Hiroshima here before booking it to Kyoto. This gorgeous spot was easy to get to but off the beaten track... A perfect combination for a mildly adventurous traveler. Use your JR pass to get here from Hiroshima station. Once you arrive at the closest station you have to walk uphill, there will likely be... More

Not sure why but this temple seems to be off the tourist trail it was very very quiet when we visited amazingly so - really nice peaceful temple well worth looking round, bit of a ride out of Hiroshima either by car or tram so not easy to walk to

Not seen by many visitors to Hiroshima. A peaceful park with a lot of shadow and beautiful autumn colors. If you do not have a car, you will have to take a train form Hiroshima and walk some distance up a hill. Worth a visit.

At the outskirt of Hiroshima, this buddhist temple houses the famous Spring that provides water for the annual ceremony of the Peace Memorium (Atomic bomb remembrance). Statues populates the entire hill, nested in the rocks, at the foot of old trees or around the various shrines. We took a taxi from Hiroshima bus centre to the foothill and hiked up... More

Another traveler inofrmed me this is nice place to look around. Since I had one more day left before coming back, I visited here without any expectation. However, it was super good place to hang around. Very quiet place surrounded by local residence. I also could enjoy the view of Hiroshima city from the top. It would much better for... More
