Kimii-dera (Temple) is famous for early-flowering cherry blossoms and it is also the second temple where amulets can be obtained in west Japan and pilgrims in pilgrim dress can be seen visiting with their walking sticks and an earnest look in their eyes.

Sil ny avait quun seul temple à voir à Wakayama, ce serait celui-là. Le temple de Kimii-dera a été fondé au VIIIème siècle par un moine venu de Chine. Il faut monter 230 marches pour y accéder et payer un modeste droit dentrée (200 yens). On peut y voir une spectaculaire statue de Bouddha dorée de 12 mètres de haut.

Kimii-dera Temple is known for its early-blooming cherry blossom so despite being several weeks early for sakura season I crossed my fingers and climbed the steps to this Buddhist temple.

With so many Buddhist shrines and temples, you could spend days in Wakayama City and still not discover them all! Below are just a handful of temples and shrines I’d recommend visiting, but there are hundreds more. These are a few of the major highlights in Wakayama City…

No matter which mode of transportation you use, you will definitely see the Kimiidera shrine as you pass it! It’s nestled in the side of the mountain, standing out in bright red amongst the dark green forestry. It’s a little bit high up, about 200 steps or so, but totally worth it for the view!
