Add time to your Hiroshima visit for at least a half-day at this enchanting temple. It is definitely worth a visit in any season, but it is especially beautiful in autumn when the leaves have turned. It was crowded on a gloriously sunny day in...More

This not-so-well known treasure is an 8-minute train ride on the JR Kabe line (third stop from Hiroshima station). It's a modest walk up-hill, but the beauty and uncrowded serenity of the place is hard to describe adequately. Don't miss the waterfalls as you work...More

It took quite some stamina to arrive to this temple. However, I think it was very worth it because it is in an area full of greenery. Also, there are a few waterfalls nearby, which I thought was really nice. At this temple, there is...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).
