"Besides the red torii gate..." Hiroshima Favorite Tip by ErnieGal

Hiroshima General: 59 reviews and 93 photos


Favorite thing: Besides the red torii gate that stands guard in the water in front of it, <font color=red> <b>Itsukushima Shrine</font> </b> is undoubtedly the most famous landmark on Miyajima. Originally dating from the sixth century, the present structure was redesigned in the Shinden architectural style in the 12th century. Viewed at high tide, the shrine appears to be floating on the water. Its open areas ceremonies and performances throughout the year.
