ITSUKUSHIMA SHRINE
ITSUKUSHIMA SHRINE
〒739-0588 Miyajima-cho, Hatsukaichi City

In December of the year Heisei 8 (1996), Itsukushima Shrine was registered as a World Heritage Site. Looking out over the Inland Sea before it and crowned to its rear by Mt. Misen, a sacred mountain where the gods are believed to have descended to earth, Itsukushima Shrine strikes a harmony between natural and man-made beauty.
