This shrine, located on an island of the Seto Inland Sea, is worldly famous for its 'floating' view on the sea. The 10-minute ferry from Miyajima-guchi Station takes you to the island, and you will be greeted by numerous roaming deer. The long approach is studded with food stalls with inviting local treats such as fried fishcake (satsuma-age), roasted oyster and maple-shaped sweet bun (momiji-manju).
As you walk through a main hall and a noh theater stage, you will come to the spot where you can get a great view of 16m-high vermilion gate called "Ootoriyi" standing in the sea. You must, however, check out the tide of the day in advance. At high tide, it is time to appreciate the floating view of the shrine or enjoy a cruise going through the gate. At low tide, you can probably walk towards the gate and even touch it.
If you have enough time, stroll 10 minutes to the ropeway that will take you to the upper part of Mount Misen (535m) offering a sweeping view of the sea. Another highlight is a night cruise to see an enchanting illumination of the shrine.
There's construction going on "Ootoriyi" right now."Ootoriyi" has been covered by a black big net and cannot be seen.
It will be taked 2 or 3 years forward. So it is difficult to take photo with huge vermilion gate in this term.
Miyajima celebrates ”Kangen festival” ceremony to carry a float of God on boat to Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is considered one of three major sea festivals in Japan, along with Tenjin Festival in Osaka and Horan-enya Festival in Matsue. The festival lasts for 10 days before this ceremony, and ancient court music with the flute, drums and string instruments will be played on boats decked out in decoration. The festival involves many of nearby shrines on the coast, such as Nagahama Shrine, where the God-carrying boat is received by fire and lanterns. This event can be fully enjoyed from a cruise boat.
Miyajima is one of the World Heritage Sites in Japan and the popular tourists destination. Located off the coast of Hiroshima, the serene beauty of the island is an essential spot.
You will walk around the island including Great Red Torii Gate, Itsukushima Shrine, Daishoin Temple, and so on.

At the north end of 12-hector Peace Memorial Park, the shell of a domed building has been left standing since August 6th, 1945. This structure was the only surviving building after the atomic bomb exploded 600 meters above, and is the most renowned symbol of Hiroshima and a testament to what happened here. The rubble and debris inside of it still remains there.
The place, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, is beautifully lit up at night near the river. It is recommended to visit the nearby memorial museum for more context and explanation. Take a tram from Hiroshima Station for 15 minutes to get off outside this building.
