Hasedera Temple on the slopes of Mount Hatsuse (548m) is an old temple dating from the 7th century. This is one of 33 points on the pilgrimage route in the Kansai region, and has long been known as the "Temple of Flowers". It is depicted in many of ancient literature works including Pillow Story, Tale of Genji and Sarashina Nikki written in the 11th century.
Approached by some 400 stone steps, the main hall has a veranda with breath-taking views and houses a 10m-tall image of Kannon (Buddhist goddess of mercy) with 11 faces. The best times to visit are in the spring for blooming peonies and cherry blossoms and in the autumn for a vivid red color of maple leaves.
