●About Aki Kokubunji Temple
Aki Kokubunji Temple is an ancient temple built 1,300 years ago by an imperial decree of Emperor Shomu.
Even today, historic sites from that time still remain within the precincts of the temple, offering a glimpse into the temple's history. The Niomon Gate, said to have been built in the Muromachi Period, and the Gomado Hall, built in the late Edo Period, are designated as important cultural properties by Higashi-Hiroshima City, as are the two Yakushi Nyorai statues in the Yakushido Hall, which are the principal images.

日本での思い出

一時帰国の際主人と娘と3人で一部屋に泊まらせていただきました。時差ぼけが治らなかったのか眠れなかった主人は残念ながら朝食をいただくことができませんでした。それでもホストは長らく待ってくださいましたし、帰り際には疲れが取れるようにと漢方入浴剤までお土産にいただきました。御寺の歴史、朝食の説明も日本語と英語でしていただきました。外国人はもちろん日本育ちの私にもとても勉強になりました。みなさんに細かいところまで気を配っていただいてとても素晴らしいステイでした、おすすめします。

Welcoming, special experience.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Two of the three of us participated in the calligraphy session which was fun, affirming and relaxing. The accommodation was clean and spacious. The temple and grounds were beautiful and you have the option of joining morning prayer which I did. We had breakfast inclusive and the flavours and quality of food was excellent - this was near the end of our 3 weeks in Japan and was my most delicious breakfast! Healthy, local, vegan food.
Most importantly the people were friendly and warm making us feel included and welcome. Thank you.

Amazing stay

We had a great stay and it was such a privilege. After 3 weeks in Japan this was our best breakfast. Note, the office for check in is right on site and there is a convenient limo bus from the closest station to the Hiroshima airport. If it's chilly it's worth dressing warmly as it is in all of Japan. We really appreciated being able to watch and participate in the morning prayers. For those that don't speak Japanese, we don't, the monk is humble and can certainly communicate better than he thinks. This is a must stay for those open to the experience. The meal was vegan for those with any sensitivities and completely natural. Proud sand wonderful people. Open and sharing.

Intimate and peaceful stay in a beautiful setting

This was the highlight of our two week vacation in Japan. The meals were unparalleled! The amount of care and attention invested in each item of dinner and breakfast were evident in the flavors of every bite. We elected for the gomagyo, which gave us the opportunity to learn calligraphy and do meditation with the head priest, which I highly recommend. Words cannot capture how special our stay was. We expected a unique experience, but we gained so much more.
