What people are saying:

Taishoin, the first ancient temple in Miyajima with a long history of over 1200 years. When you go to Miyajima, don't miss the Daishoin Temple behind Itsukushima Shrine, where various gods gather. ✨ Daishoin Temple is located in Miyajima-cho, Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is also called Takiyama Daishoin Suisei-ji Temple. It is the oldest temple in Miyajima's history. Daishoin is one of the most important temples of Shingon Buddhism. Daishoin is located on the hillside of Mount Miyama. Miyama is the founder of Shingon Buddhism, Master Kobo, who began his practice in Miyajima. Dashengyuan has several buildings, sculptures and other religious objects for visitors to enjoy. ✨These buildings include Guanyin Hall, Mani Hall, Wanfu Hall, Airan Mingwang Hall, and Yiyuan Master Hall. A sand altar made by a monk from Tibet, a tea room and a Panzhao cave, which house the principal statues of 88 temples across Japan. There are also many statues of Buddha in the temple, such as the Eleven-faced Guanyin Bodhisattva, Boche Fudo Ming Wang, the deity of the Dewan Hall, the Three Ghosts and Daquan, and the Seven Deities of Good Fortune. Many of them are provided by believers. ✨In the temple, there are a large number of stone arhats along the stone steps, covered with moss, in different shapes, full of warmth, and almost every Buddha statue wears a woolen hat handmade by believers, which is very vivid and lovely.
