As huge 'scafolding structures covered in plastic' go, this was quite unlike anything I have ever seen. The Camera did not lie. The 'Great Torri gate', one of Japan's most iconic sites, was very well hidden, at both high and low-tide. For how long - No clue. we were there in mid-Oct 2019.

What pops into people's mind when one thinks of the country Japan? Mt Fuji, Hot Spring, Kimono, the list goes on and on, and I bet a lot of people will think of Japanese Torii Gates, the beautiful architectures commonly found at the entrance of or within a Shinto shrine. If you like Torii and you are planning to go to Hiroshima, don't ever miss this magnificent Torii in the sea! On the island Miyajima, there is this famous Itsukushima Shrine with an enormous Torii in the sea, and if you stay long enough and time it right, you can approach it when the tide goes out. It's currently under renovation though

Prior to visiting, I knew that the "Floating Torii" was undergoing a long-term restoration in preparation for the 2020 Olympics (now re-scheduled to 2021). Even shrouded by scaffolding and semi-transparent sheeting, it's hard not to impressed by the structure. There's such a lot to see on Miyajima that I wasn't the least bit disappointed in missing out on this .... I'm going to have to return sometime in the future and take in all the other things that I didn't manage to visit this day, .... including the restored torii!

The Itsukushima Shrine Torii was under restoration (august 2019)... what a pity, but there's nothing we could do about it. It's an iconic image of Japan and the visit is worth. If you have time, you can enjoy it with the low and high tide, from different angles and lights. I think it's worth spending the night in Miyajima and be able to see the Torii without so many tourists. And the sunset and sunrises are amazing.

You can't have it all, can you. While Miyajima proved to be as magical and worthwhile as expected, did we unfortunately not get to see the Itsukushima Shrine Torii in its full glory, due to the reconstruction work, that is currently being carried out on one of Japans most famous sites. One can easily imagine the marvel this sight holds, as there are enough pictures available on prospects and the internet, but unfortunately we didn't get to see it. Still absolutely worth the trip!
