Kimii-dera Temple

This temple is said to have been founded by a Chinese monk in the year 770 and was a place to pray for the prosperity of the Tokugawa Clan of Wakayama. Many cherry trees are planted within the precincts of Kimii-dera Temple, which is known as a place for early-blooming cherry blossoms. Once you climb all 231 steps that lead to the precincts, you can enjoy panoramic views of beautiful Wakanoura Bay.
