Hiroshima Jodo-ji Temple Okunoin - Jodo-ji Observatory

Jodo-ji Temple is believed to have been built by Prince Shotoku. Behind Jodo-ji Temple there is an "Okunoin" or inner sanctuary at the summit of Mt. Jodo-ji, where images of gods or Buddhas are enshrined. From the Okunoin, guests can visit the observatory to enjoy the view of Onomichi City, Onomichi Suido and the Setouchi Archipelago.
