Things to know

Mt. Shosha Engyoji Temple is a historical Buddhist temple in the mountains of Himeji city. It is one of the 33 temples of the Kannon Pilgrimage Route in the Kansai region. You can hike up the mountain or take a ropeway right up to the temple's entrance. The temple buildings are spread over a large area on the mountain top, so it will take you some time to explore the whole complex. One of the highlights is the beautiful wooden Maniden hall that is a 20-30 minutes walk away from the ropeway station. Mt. Shosha and the Engyoji Temple has been used as a filming locations for various movies, including the Hollywood blockbuster The Last Samurai because of their scenic location and the atmospheric historical buildings.
