What people are saying:

It is a temple on the northwest hillside of Hiroshima Station. It is said that it was built by Kukai and is called Santaki-ji because there are three waterfalls in the area: Komaga-taki, Brahma-n-taki and Yumei no Taki. It is recommended that you wear comfortable shoes, as this will cause a fairly long staircase from the parking lot to the temple and Ishiki aki at the top. Taihe people moved out from Wakayama Shrine to commemorate the atomic bombing, which is very admirable. Moreover, since there was almost no damage when the atomic bomb was dropped, it became a temporary relief center for victims, and many memorials commemorating peace wishes can be seen in the area.

    Worth the walk from the station

    Beautiful and peaceful

    We had a choice of Miyajima or Mitaki and went for Mitaki. I suspect the two are opposites and we made the right call. We took the train and the short walk up the hill - 10-20 minutes. The temple ...

    Hidden gem! Not to be missed!

    Add time to your Hiroshima visit for at least a half-day at this enchanting temple. It is definitely worth a visit in any season, but it is especially beautiful in autumn when the leaves have turned....
