Itsukushima Shrine


The Itsukushima Shrine is located on the shores of Miyajima, an island in the Seto Inland Sea not far from Hiroshima city. While the name Itsukushima means “island of worship”, the site is more famously known as “the floating shrine”, as the buildings appear to be floating on the water when the tide rolls in.


Beginning in June 2019, the large torii gate of Itsukushima will be covered for renovations until sometime in 2020.

Otori Gate

The shrine’s torii gate, sitting apart from the main precincts in the middle of the channel, is one of Japan’s most iconic sites. Measuring around 16.5 meters high, it is one of the first sights to greet visitors arriving by ferry from the mainland. The torii’s main pillars are made from 500-600 year old camphor trees that are naturally resistant to rot and insects. The current gate dates from 1875.
