Mitaki-dera

Mitaki-dera (三瀧寺?) is a historic Japanese temple in the city of Hiroshima, Japan.

Overview[edit]

Mitaki-dera was founded in 809 during the Daidō era.

Mitaki-dera is familiar with the name of "Mitaki-Kannon" (三滝観音?).

There are three falls, and the water will be used as an offering of water to the victims of the atomic bomb during the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony.

The tahōtō was dismantled from Hiro-Hachiman-jinja (広八幡神社?) in Hirogawa, Wakayama in 1951, to hold a memorial service for the victims of the atomic bomb.

There is the wooden seated statue of Amida Nyorai in the Tahōtō.

Mitaki-dera is famous for sakura, autumn leaves and maples.

Mitaki-dera is the 13th of Chūgoku 33 Kannon Pilgrimage.
