Things to know

Itsukushima Shrine, a shrine in Miyajima, is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its bold and creative structure that takes the sea as its setting, and characteristic 9th-11th century architecture, this is one of Japan's greatest shrines. When the tide comes in, one can admire the mysterious architectural beauty as the Shrine appears to float in the sea. The main shrine building (the structure where the Shinto Shrine is celebrated) which has been painted in a vivid scarlet color, is both pretty and distinctive. Also, the large Torii (A Traditional Japanese Shrine Gate) floating on the sea is a famous feature.
