"Miyajima: Torii gate." Itsukushima Shrine Tip by Intrepidduck
Itsukushima Shrine, Miyajima: 29 reviews and 91 photos
One of the most stunning objects to see in all of Japan, while indeed much visited and photographed, is the floating torii (Shinto gate). Depending on the time of day it can be sarounded by mud as the tide goes out quite along way. I took advantage to get some good pics, although getting wet up to the waist, and walked through the torii and straight out some distance beyond. A most notable feature was that I was not the first to do this. Pushed into the thick timber structure were many old coins, see picture.
Address: Miyajima Island
Directions: Out from the Itsukushima Shrine.
