Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is worth while a visit. It is incredibly beautiful and surrounded by a calm atmosphere.

We went to view this 12th-century Shinto shrine on a half-day trip from Hiroshima. I had been here twice before but wanted to show the island and shrine to my traveling companion. My previous visits had occurred at high tide when the shrine and its famous torii gate appear to be floating. Our busy schedule during this early-October trip was only open during low tide. Not only did the huge gate fail to float, it was covered with scaffolding and canvas-like material for restoration work. The big vermilion-and-white shrine still offered plenty to see. Its main building and smaller shrines extend over the water, built on piers and connected by boardwalks with red colonnades and lanterns. At the elevated stage, used for ancient court dances, we looked out directly at the wooden torii gate, one of the biggest in Japan. But it offered no good photo op that day. Ambling along the corridors with many others, we looked down on mud rather than water licking at the structure. Lesser shrines included Daikoku for the deity of matchmaking and Tenjin, patron of scholarship. The shrine's treasure hall stands past the exit. As this is the island's main attraction, I suggest stopping at the extremely helpful Tourist Information office at Hiroshima's train station to get the tide schedule and to learn whether any work is under way at the shrine or gate. Though we found the shrine to be worth seeing under the described conditions, others may not agree. It took us about 10 minutes to walk from the ferry terminal to the north side of the shrine. Be prepared to be pestered by many of the island's tame deer. Admission is charged and visitors must enter here and exit on the south side.

Favourite part was the Shrine itself. Delightful wander around, took a load of pics, choosing the gaps between bodies carefully. A very pleasant, photogenic hour's stroll - all flat so very child and handicapped friendly.

One of the most beautiful and spiritual places I have been to in my life. Was lucky enough to be there when a wedding was going on as well.

The Itsukushima Shrine is the "house" of the famous floating toring. It's a temple by the sea and it is affected by the low and high tide. It's nice, cute, very red... and with quite a few tourists. There's an entrance fee to the Shrine (unlike Torii, which you can enjoy for free).
