Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社)

 

Itsukushima Shrine in Hiroshima Prefecture is a Shinto shrine dedicated

to the three daughter of the deity of seas and storms on the sacred 
Miyajima Island in Seto Inland Sea, where gods are believe.

 

The vermillion-painted buildings connected by corridors and its symbolic

great torii gate appear as if floating on the sea at high tides. 


 

UNESCO World Heritage 

Standing in perfect harmony with its natural surroundings, 
this elegant palace-style architecture was registered on 
the list of UNESCO World Heritage in 1996. 

 

Five-storied Pagoda 

 The 27m high Pagoda is said to have been 
constructed in 1407, and beautifully blended
Japanese architecture with that of Tang Dynasty
China.  The Pagoda has five levels and a hollow
construction in the interior.

The buddhist temple oversaw the Itsukishima. Shrine festival until Shinto and Buddhism

were spareted during the Meiji Era. The entrance to the temple is guarded on both sides

by Buddhist statues and there are many others in the main hall such as the wave-cutting

God of fire and Eleven-headed Buddha. The elevated location of the temple offers

beautiful views of Miyajima and the cityscape on the opposit shore.
