Things to know

Daishoin Temple is a historical Buddhist temple located on Mt. Misen on Miyajima Island. It is said to be the oldest Buddhist temple on Miyajima. Legend has it that it was founded in the 9th century by the famous priest Kukai, the founder of the esoteric Shingon sect. In addition to a traditional Buddhist hall, there is also a dimmed room with countless Buddhist statues that is illuminated by lanterns and has a mystical atmosphere. If you are climbing Mt. Misen, you should definitely make a stop at this historic temple complex. Due to the beautiful autumn leaves around the temple, fall is a great time to visit.
