Itsukushima, popularly known as Miyajima is an island located not far from the city of Hiroshima. I had the chance to take the ferry across to visit the shrine there. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and doesn’t disappoint. Sadly, I wasn’t there for high tide. This, I’ve been told, is the best time to view the shrine as it appears to be floating on the water. The day was a bit grey and rainy, but I’m still very pleased I took the time to explore the island a bit.
