NatureNagoyama Stupa

This modern cemetary park is located on a hillside about 1 km northwest of National Treasure, Himeji Castle.
The park is known for its iconic 38-meter domed stupa.
With its six stupas in a row and the various halls attached to them, Nagoyama Memorial Park evokes an exotic atmosphere.
Inside the stupa is a reliquary hall that houses ashes of the Buddha, a gift from Indian Prime Minister Nehru as a gesture to wish for wish for eternal peace and happiness for mankind. Visitors can also find a statue of a Buddha triad, and standing statues of the ten disciples of the Buddha, which create an atmosphere of purity and solemnity.
In the garden outside, the lush greenery is ideal for strolling.
In early April, the cherry blossoms are at their peak, and azaleas cover the hillside in red, pink, and white in mid-April.
The view from the observation deck is particularly wonderful and well worth seeing.
