A World Heritage-listed Shinto temple, Itsukushima Shrine remains best known for its red torii gate, "floating" on the surface of the Inland Sea. The shrine dates back to the 12th century and has undergone several reconstructions over the ages, most recently in the 16th century. Admire the scenic shrine building, which is at its most picturesque at high tide, when both the gate and the structure on stilts appear to be floating on the sea. Take a relaxing walk and explore the surroundings, or enjoy the view from a boat cruise.

Itsukushima Shrine Reviews
潮の満ち引きによって趣が変わる神社。 社殿や鳥居も大きくとても立派でした。 干潮時には鳥居のすぐそばまで歩いて行くことも出来ます。 干潮や満潮の時刻をあらかじめ調べていくのがおすすめです。 more »A shrine whose taste is changed by the tide. The shrine and torii were also very good. At low tide, you can walk to the torii. It is recommended to check the time of low tide and high tide beforehand.
広島側からフェリー乗船後10分程度で到着で、そこから厳島神社まで10分程度歩きます。 現在鳥居の足元は工事中で、白いカバーがかかっていましたが、存在感はバツグンにありました。 一度は見ておきたい素晴らしい場所でした。 more »It takes about 10 minutes to board the ferry from Hiroshima, and it takes about 10 minutes to get to Itsukushima Shrine. Torii's feet are currently under construction, and there was a white cover, but the presence was in the game. It was a great place to see once.

a beauty of a place overlooking the famous tori gates of the island. there's a towering pagoda.
