Itsukushima Jinja Shrine 厳島神社
This shrine is known for the unique and bold concept of being built in the sea as well as its elegant architectural style called “Shinden-zukuri”.

Before you even depart from the boat you can see the shrine. It stands so majestically over the island seemingly larger than life, tons of tourists swan around the shrine to get the perfect picture to capture its majesty.
It's roughly 30 minutes or so outside of Hiroshima city, but it leaves such an everlasting impression on you once you arrive. Deer roam the shrine, as well as the island itself, and the different levels of tides provides numerous photo opportunities throughout the day. Recommended as an overnight trip by staying in one of the ryokans on the hotel!
