Things to know

Ioji Temple is located on a piece of high ground in a small harbor town in Fukuyama city, Hiroshima prefecture. Ioji Temple is said to be the foundation for Kobo Daishi’s Shingon Sect that he founded during the Heian period. The wooden Bhaisajyaguru statue (Buddha of Healing) is designated prefectural important cultural property. Due to being built on high ground, the temple is quite famous for its good views. The view beyond the temple’s bell of the town of Tomocho is particularly picturesque and you’ll notice many visitors taking snaps on their cameras. 
Also, on top of the views from the temple grounds, you can also get a great sweeping view of the Setouchi area and Tomonoura from the Taishi Dono located halfway up the mountain behind the temple. Try and check out this view too whilst visiting Ioji temple!
