Famous floating torii of Miyajima

Famous floating torii of Miyajima

This is considered one of Japan’s three most scenic places. The “floating” torii of Miyajima (Itsukushima is it’s proper name, but everyone calls it Miyajima.)

This is a torii constructed out in the water between mainland and the island of Miyaima where there is a large, famous shinto shrine. I don’t know how many centuries it has been there, but I believe it has been rebuilt 7 times in it’s history. It is definitely worth seeing. I wish I had more time to photograph it. I will definitely return there to see it again in the future. As a lover of shinto shrines it was quite inspiring for me.
