"Larger and more varied than..." Hiroshima Favorite Tip by ErnieGal

Hiroshima General: 59 reviews and 93 photos


Favorite thing: Larger and more varied than Itsukushima Shrine, <font color=red> <b>Daishoin</font> </b> is located partway up to the hill above Itsukushima Shrine. Guarded by fierce carved figures on either side of the wooden gate at the bottom of the entrance stairs, the temple contains numerous treasures, including magnificent examples of traditional Japanese wood construction without nails, many carved figures of saints and mythical creatures, a small carp pond, a hall of Buddhist statues, and picturesque natural areas.
