The most beautiful time to take picture is during sunset. But it also comes with a huge crowd of tourists.

Did not have a chance to wait until low tide. But enjoyed it very much for a winter afternoon - calm and peaceful.

We travelled here via Hiroshima and took the ferry just down from the Atomic Bomb Dome. It was a 45 minute ferry ride to Miyajimacho. The ferry was probably the most expensive way to get there but it was fast and it gave us a...More

It is the highlight of the trip, very easy to spot when you walk around Miyajima island. It is said that when the tide is low, people can walk to the Torii to touch it. However when we were there in December, it was having...More
