Itsukushima Shrine




Floating atop the ocean, this World Heritage Site shrine is a fusion of architectural beauty and gorgeous scenery.

This shrine was built toward the end of the 6th century, although its current appearance is said to be a reflection of its condition in the 12th century. The red shrine building that sits atop the ocean waters can take on a completely different look depending on the tides. Highlights include the large gate and the Noh stage. Illumination at night enshrouds the shrine in a mysterious atmosphere.
