Momijidani Park

Maple park

Is a park stretching along Momijidani river near the valley at the foot of mount Misen. It was cultivated during the Edo period when maple saplings trees were planted. This was the beginning of Momijidani Park. One of the ‘Eight Most Beautiful Views’ in Itsukushima, ‘Yatsugaharabiroku’ meaning ‘Yatsugahara’ is in the east of Momijidani Park.

200 Maple Trees

Cherry blossoms in spring, fresh green leaves in early summer and autumnal tints in fall, the change of seasons is the attraction. The best part being the various hues in autumn created by 200 maple trees.
