A beautiful view and a nice little Japanese temple
May 2017 • Solo
I was travelling with my bike on Shimanami Kaido Cycling route from Onomichi to Imabari. If you are fit and the weather is nice, then I would strongly recommend to make a short visit to Mt. Shirataki. With the bicycle it took me about 45min to get to the top, with a short break at a nice flower view point on the way up. With the bicycle it's a bit a steep climb, but it's totally worth it, if you reach the top.

If you are travelling with the car, it's very easy to get there. You can drive almost to the very top and it should have enough parking places. When I was there, only a small group of other Japanese travelers were up there.

On the top you will find a nice small Japanese temple and a beautiful view over the whole area (360°). On the very top there are many Buddha statues and a big bell from the temple. It's a nice scenery to take some pictures. If you are interested in nice landscapes or the Japanese culture and temples I really would recommend to pay this place a visit.

I just made a small break there but I liked very much.

Budda engraved rocky mountain, Mihara city.
Mar 2010
It is a mountain with a temple (ryuzen-ji) on a rocky top engraved with many budda statues and a nice (scary) view perspecting the Seto, the inner-sae.

You need a car, 15min from the closest station Sunami, or 30min from Mihara-station. You also need a short walk from the parking place.

it is in Mihara, but not Innoshima. The temple's address is:
Koizumi 4543, Mihara, Hiroshima, 729-2361, tel:0848-66-3384
The priest is somehow from the U.S.

〒729-2361
