Explore the Miyajima World Heritage site, and indulge in the spectacular view from the sea. This plan will take you on a journey by way of images of the Itsukushima Shrine and torii gate that seemingly float in the sea.
Here you will find seven bays that are home to nine sublime shrines, some of which can only be reached by boat. With guided sightseeing, you will visit the central attraction, Itsukushima Shrine, as well as the neighboring shrines peppered along the water edge of the island. By worshiping all nine shrines, you will soon discover the true essence of the island, and understand why Miyajima is regarded as The Island of Gods. The opportunity to gain an atmospheric insight into the history and culture of the World Heritage site Miyajima Island will make your cruise excursion that much more memorable.
After you have pursued the last shrine, spend the rest of the day relaxing on a raft while lightly indulging in some Japanese sweets. Savoring the flavors while taking in the beautiful scenery in front of you will simply make the sweets taste much more vibrant and rich.
The great shrine gate of Itsukushima Shrine has been under renovation since June 2019.
There is a possibility that can not be seen as normal.
