Known as the Mitaki Kannon, this ancient temple is said to have been founded by Kukai and has spectacular colored leaves in the fall.

There are three waterfalls flowing within the temple grounds, which are the origin of Mitaki-dera's name. Mitakiji Temple, also known as Mitaki Kannon, is surrounded by seasonal nature and has a deep mountain and valley atmosphere, and many people come to worship as a place of relaxation for local residents. The autumn leaves are especially spectacular, and it is one of Hiroshima's famous spots. There are many wooden buildings that were completed between the end of the Edo period and the beginning of the Meiji period, and the valley is dotted with the Soshin Kannon-do Hall, bell tower, Inari Shrine, Miki Gongen-do Hall, and Chinju-do Hall. There is a Tahoto pagoda, which is an important cultural property of the prefecture, in the precincts, and a wooden seated statue of Amida Nyorai, which is an important cultural property of the country, is also enshrined in the hall.
