Named a World Heritage Site in 1996, Itsukushima has long been renowned as a holy island and with Itsukushima Shrine actually standing on the water, provides a breathtaking view of the sea that looks truly spiritual. The torii gate is placed out at sea and during high tide, the shrine sits in the water allowing for a pristine ocean view while at low tide people can walk right up to it. Visitors come to Itsukushima Shrine for not only a historical and cultural experience but also to see a spectacular sight rarely seen anywhere else.
