Itsukushima Shrine, Hatsukaichi

4.5
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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
