In the valley of Mount Mitakiyama, northwestern Hiroshima, you will find Mitaki Temple. It is also known by the locals as Mitaki Kannon.
Within the temple grounds, there is a vermillion two-storey pagoda. It is regarded as an important cultural property of Hiroshima prefecture. There is also an important Japanese cultural property in the pagoda – a wooden seated Buddha sculpture. These two cultural properties make Mitaki Temple a prominent Buddhist temple in the city.
If you are not buddhist, you will still be able to appreciate the cherry blossoms in spring and fall colours in autumn.
This lovely landscape makes it a popular sightseeing spot for locals and tourists all year round. Entrance to the temple is free!
