Index

    Miyajima is considered to be one of Japan’s three most scenic locations along with Matsushima and Amanohashidate. Over three million visitors from Japan and overseas visit this island with a population of 1,800. Itsukushima Shrine, the symbol of Miyajima, is known for its red torii and main building in the sea. All of the main buildings are national treasures or important national cultural properties. Mt. Misen behind the shrine was registered as a World Heritage Site in 1996. You can encounter the wild deer that live all over the island.
