Kyushu Travel Guide

Itsukushima Shrine

 

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.


 

Daishoin

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.
