Travel Guide - Itsukushima-jinja Shrine

InformationInformation

Itsukushima-jinja Shrine is said to have been established in 593. The shrine became prosperous when Taira-no-Kiyomori constructed the current Shinden-zukuri style buildings in 1168. Visitors can see the quintessence of Japan’s traditional beauty and harmony with nature.
The shrine's 20 buildings including its Shaden halls, Hira-butai (Broad stage), Taka-butai (High stage), and Noh-butai (Noh stage) are connected each other with 280 meters of vermilion-colored corridors. The shrine's huge Torii gate and these magnificent shrine buildings become surrounded by water at high tide and look as if they are floating on the water.
Miyajima, where the shrine is located, can be reached from Hiroshima Station by train and ferry in about one hour. If you take a ropeway ride to the top of Mt. Misen, you can enjoy a great view of islands in the Seto Inland Sea.
