Itsukushima Shrine

Itsukushima Shrine


“Miyajima of Aki Province” became well known as one of the three most scenic places in Japan, along with Matsushima and Amanohashidate. Itsukushima Shrine was registered as a World Heritage in 1996. The vermilion-painted buildings connected by the corridors and its great torii gate appear as if floating on the sea at high tides.
