Visiting the shrine of itsukushima is a surreal feeling. I wonder how the Japanese people preserve this UNESCO Heritage site in such a way that visitors come and go in thousands. The area is clean and full of history. The presence of herds of deer is an added bonus.

厳島神社が美しく建築自体が独特の知恵と技術を誇ることは誰もが知るところです。午前9時頃になると日帰り客が押し寄せとても賑やかです。それはそれで良いのですが、朝、日の出頃の厳島神社は静かで穏やかで自然と融合していて美しいです。早起きをする価値があるのです。満潮の時に海に浮かぶ神社が干潮になるとしっかりと地に存在することが実感できます。これらは滞在しなければできない体験です。 It is well known that Itsukushima Shrine is beautiful and famous in its unique architecture. But it couldn’t be better if you can see the shrine softly shining in the background of pale orange light in early morning. Furthermore, the shrine opens at around 6:30 when very few people there. This is the best time to take photos of the shrine itself. Because the shrine successfully transforms itself between in the high tide and the low tide, you can experience this magic like landscape if you stay in Miyajima. 私が滞在した時は、干潮が午前6時頃。7:30くらいまでは鳥居に歩いていける日でした。天気も良く見通しも良く朝日がやわらかいオレンジ色に輝いていました。その朝日に輝く本州側の景色を背景に堂々とそびえ立つ鳥居は神々しくなんとも言えない雰囲気でした。これは宮島に滞在しないとできないこと。そして、建築物自体の写真を撮るならやはり朝です。今日は6:30から中に入れました。朝早くは入り口で宮司さんが笛の練習をしていて、なお一層神々しい雰囲気になっていました。 干潮の時に現れる鏡の池も澄んだ水で光っていました。 Kagami-no-Ike ( the pond of mirror in which natural water comes out ) appear in the low tide. That was so clear and beautiful.

Nothing really fanciful about the shrine. Most people come here for the great tori. And I realised you can actually walk into the shrine during Low tide and save on entrance fee lol! Only realised it after payment and saw many students walking on sand banks to access the shrine. LOW TIDE only. And u don’t have to enter the shrine to actually take a photo with the great tori.
