  • The temple is on a hill overlooking the city of Onomichi. Steep slope is recommended aerial tramway. Seen on the Summit Lookout and food and beverage outlets. From around the precincts up welcoming quite climb, so was recommended, walk down.

  • Wholeheartedly impressed by great views and did not visit the temple wanted the amulet that sells like aunt's voice, so the Immaculate Heart. Also, amulet too indiscreet touch, flying the blessings, like dirty seemed to become. Survive peacefully so far made over time, not bad.

  • This temple offers one of the best view of Omamich as you can see from my photo. This region was badly affected by the typhoon and heavy rain in Jul'18 yet you can see no sign of that. If you drive there is ample paid parking of 500yen per entry nearby. Not worth to take the cable car as you'll miss all the fun driving up. And don't miss the local plum juice. Simply amazing.
  • So beautiful cats are living in mountain. And you can see the old temple. I think if you go up with roap way, you'd better go down on foot. So you can see cats!!
