Big and a view

The size: it's pretty big. You can walk under it on one side, and almost feel this big building on you. The view from up here is good for photos as well.

This is a well spacious structure built on an elevated ground behind the Itsukushima Shrine. It has a history of over 450 years and has been build by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who's known as Japan's second "great unifier". Once stepped into the balcony area, it gives an amazing view of the surrounding. Absolutely worth visiting.

Great collection of artwork and the views from here were beautiful. I recommend it if you also want to take a nice photo of Gojuno To. Cheap too.

You see this from walking around the lower part of Miyajima. It is positioned on a slight elevation. As you approach it by walking up the stairs, it seems to rise up even more. Once you are standing next to it, the dimensions are quite staggering. Walking around it you appreciate the architecture and craftsmanship in its construction. Well worth... More

1000 tatamis may be hyperbole - but the hall certainly is expansive. Two different steep and long sets of steps take you up to the hall; go up one and down the other. From many locations on the island you can see Gojuno To, the five story pagoda, next to the shrine - use the pagoda as a target and... More

This is the perfect pitstop for those who have walked around Miyajima all day or just visited Misen. It's peaceful, cooling, and has amazing views overlooking Miyajima Shrine. Be sure you're wearing nice socks when visiting, as you are required to swap your shoes for slippers or walk on with socks only to preserve it's natural wooden flooring. It's a... More

Slightly out of the way at the top of a small hill behind the Itsukushima shrine, one can find the Five Storey Pagoda with this small temple next to it. The pagoda itself was a little disappointing; up close there is not a lot to see compared to the view of it from around the town and one cannot go... More
