Hiroshima Mitaki Temple

I went to Mitaki temple for seeing great Momiji(Maple) trees the other day.

The colored leaves are so gorgeous at Mitaki Temple in Hiroshima city.
It is a bit hidden place for visitors from overseas.
But it is actually very easy to get there by JR train from Hana Hostel!

So I really want to introduce you Mitaki temple today.

The red two-story pagoda is in the red momiji trees.

You will be so impressed when you look up as you walk on the nice stone steps. The pagoda is just located the best place to be tone in well with the colored leaves.

There is a cafe.
The cafe looks like a traditional old house.
It is always good to have a break in the comfortable atmosphere.
Especially this time of the year, you can warm your hands up with a cup of green tea.

There are three water falls around Mitaki temple and this one is called "Bon-on no taki".

There is a beautiful Japanese garden in front of the water fall.
And sometimes a tea ceremony would be held at the tea house in the garden.

I am sure that all the greenery's are very fresh and brilliant in the spring. I will visit Mitaki temple again for more walking and refreshment!

This temple was my favourite when I lived in Hiroshima. The zenzai of the little cafe is very good :-)
Several hiing course start from this temple and go up the mountains behind. Some offer a very beautifull view of Hiroshima ...
