Things to know

Mitakidera Temple, located in the valleys of Mt. Mitaki in north-west Hiroshima is familiarly known as the Mitaki goddess of mercy. “Mitaki” which means “3 waterfalls” in Japanese, is a fitting name for the temple, as it is characterized by the 3 waterfalls that surround it. The temple grounds are home to many Hiroshima prefecture important cultural properties such as the vermillion treasure pagoda which itself contains national important cultural property; the wooden Amida Nyorai sitting statue. 
 
Also, as you go through the main entrance of the temple, you will find a little resting spot tea shop called “Kuten An” where you can relax and take it slow in the middle of nature. You can also buy Japanese small accessories and trinkets along with postcards. You can even drink coffee and Matcha tea made with spring water from the waterfalls! In the Autumn, the temple becomes a popular spot famous for viewing the Autumn leaves and many people come to visit.
