The Senjokaku Pavilion is right at the side of the Toyokuni Shrine Five-Story Pagoda. If you need 5min to see the pagoda from the outside, you can spend 10-15min visiting the pavillion. The structure is very nice and it has some photogenic angles. The views of Miyajima are also really nice.

while strolling through the ancient pavillon of Senjokaku on the island of Miyajima, did I have the feeling of having encountered artworks I only knew from schoolbooks - that famous and old. The vibe is very specific due to the open area without walls with only the roof protecting the artwork as well as the fact that many of the masterpieces seem to not yet have undergone works of resturation. I liked the calm vibe of the place and feeling of authenticity.

This is barebones but definitely visiting since it is next to the pagoda and has good vantage views of the city and hills.

Senjokaku Shrine is perhaps overshadowed by the more brilliant 5 story pagoda Gojuno To just a few steps away. Nonetheless it’s quite an ancient architecture to behold. It’s situated on a hill close to the Itsukushima Shrine and it’s location at this high point presents quite a few good photo opportunities of charming Miyajima and the misty and lush Mt Misen.

Senjokaku is an enormous building on a hill overlooking Itsukujima Shrine complex below. You pay about a dollar, remove your shoes, and you get to take in the views from this ancient landmark. It rained a bit the day we were there so it was a good spot to rest and enjoy the tranquility away from the hordes below. Highly recommended!

To get to see this old wooden temple you need to take some steps. Up there you not only have a nice view you can also visit the temple. You have to pay a entrance fee of 100 yen and take of the shoes. The temple is nice and you can there also escape the big crowd and enjoy the view and the surroundings.

This is prayer hall and library of Buddhist sutras. The building is actually not finished as the founder Hideyoshi-Tomotomi died. Alongside the building is a five storied pagoda which is said to date from 1407.

The temple is very huge and open concept. Beautiful architecture and it feels magical. But it lacks of lighting during night. Worth to visit.

This unfinished temple includes many faded paintings and a huge open space underneath an impressive roof.
Peaceful and lovely

It is very interesting because you can find Taoism, hinduism am budhism all toghether in the same temple. It is a demonstration of tolerance and respect.
