Sera-cho is a highland town located in the middle of Hiroshima Prefecture with a large difference in temperature.

That Imakouyasan is celebrating its 1200th anniversary, you can feel the change of the season (Spring cherry blossoms, early summer blue autumn leaves and autumn leaves) in the center of Sera Town. Therefore, worshipers will not be uninterrupted throughout the year.

It is known as one of the best「agricultural treasures」in Hiroshima that produces high quality agricultural products such as Sera rice. Agricultural products that take advantage of the plateau's climate, such as Sera Minori beef, Sera Kogen pork, asparagus and sweet corn, are also highly evaluated in Hiroshima Prefecture.

Surrounded by glorious mountains and rolling hills, some of the largest flower gardens in Japan deliver spectacular scenery throughout each season. In spring, you can see the cherry blossoms, tulips, and a lush carpet of moss phlox called "Shibazakura" in Japanese. In early summer, roses and hydrangeas bloom and fill the air with a beautiful fragrance. You can view breathtaking flower landscapes with fields of sunflowers in summer, as well as cosmos, salvia, and dahlia in autumn.
