Discover Miyajima


Miyajima, which literally means "shrine island", is located in the Seto Inland Sea (Seto Naikai), and is a part of Hatsukaichi City in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is considered to be a sacred place and it provides a stunning example of the ability of the Japanese people to seamlessly blend architecture with natural beauty.

Deer and monkeys wander freely around Miyajima, especially on Mt. Misen, the tallest mountain on the island, where a good view of the Seto Inland Sea can be had. The red torii gate of Itsukushima Shrine is set in front of Itsukushima Shrine and appears to be floating in the water - along with Matsushima and Amanohashidate, this breathtaking view is considered to be one of the three most scenic in Japan.

Good to know: the Torii gate will be under renovation until summer 2020. For more details please see here.
