We walked up there on our 25 temple walk day and it was worth the exercise. The interesting twisted vines on the trellis in the yard and then the pagoda above. We took loads of photos but didn't end up climbing up to the pagoda...More

After walking many hours around town, we finished our day walking the stairs to this beautiful temple and I was very surprised, it's very special, peaceful and has amazing views. Really enjoyed this place and was lucky to get the last bit of sakura.

Its near the top of the hill with great view overlooking Onomichi at various vista points. There's a path carved to side of huge boulders as you go up towards the peak and its observation tower. Worth a stop to look around
