Sssssssssh. Don't tell anyone about this amazing place, quite the highlight of my visit to Japan so far. It was so peaceful, tranquil and special. We took a taxi there and asked the driver to return in an hour. That is the minimum period one should set aside to visit. I can only endorse all the incredibly positive comments on... 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:)

Great place to visit, close to the city but it makes you feel you are far away in the remote mountains. Amazing greenery and scenaries

Devoid of the usual heaving throng of tourists, this temple appears to be an eerily well-kept, secret. Tons of aged, scenic Buddhist monuments, memorials, babbling brooks, and pleasing, yet unpretentious waterfalls. Hushed and serene ambiance. You will also surely spot the giant spiderwebs and their solemn hosts, worshipping and paying their respects. In my opinion this should be in the... More

I wanted to go here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and was extremely glad that I did! The place was really easy to get to and was a short 20 minute tram and train ride from where we were staying near the A Bomb Dome. Once you get off at Mitaki Station, there are maps to direct you to the... 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 admittedly very different in nature. Why is Mitaki temple so interesting? a. The setting is... More

Went during the evening and spent close to an hour there. Not many tourists and would highly recommend it. Perfect hidden temple a bit far from downtown

This place is a peaceful oasis away from the city with lots of shrines and statues, set in a beautiful forest on a mountain slope. If you're feeling adventurous there are trails at the top of the temple leading into the forest and up the mountain.
