This place was amazing. It felt way off of the beaten path. When we were there we only saw one person the whole time we were there. A bit of a trek to get there by bus, but manageable. Beautiful setting, tons of hidden gem...More

It is the third stop along the JR Kabe line from Hiroshima. At Mitaki station a short walk uphill will take you to the entrance of the area. You will find few tourists. Only those who stay in Hiroshima three or more days come here....More

I've been to Japan many times, but only now discovered my favorite place! Beautiful nature, water, hundreds shades of green, peace and quiet, very few people... this place is really zen. Your body and mind will be very grateful if you take them here:)

You will also surely spot the giant spiderwebs and their...More

We have been to Tokyo, Fujiyama, Nara, Kyoto but this Temple and Gardens tops all the similar places we have seen! If you are looking to see a genuine Japanese garden this should not be missed!

Mitaki Temple was supposed to be an easy way to conclude our stay in Hiroshima with an «OK» last visit. It turned out to be one of our top temple sites in all of Japan, along with the Kinkakuji Temple (Golden temple) in Kyoto, although...More

I agree that between one and two hours would be good. If you are concerned about how to get there by public transport, I suggest that you take a taxi and ask the driver to return to collect you at a given time. Don't short... More
