This tour covers all the attractive places to see in Miyajima island. We visit Itsukushima Shrine, Mt. Misen and Daishyoin Temple in one day. Mt. Misen is very high, so we should use aerial ropeway. We may walk for a long time, so please wear comfortable clothes on the day.
What to Expect
Itsukushima Shrine is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Japan. Its vermilion colored Torii gate, though a little faded now, is a well-known symbol of this World Heritage Site. Miyajima island ,however , is not a special place only for this shrine. The island itself has a sacred atmosphere. In Mt. Misen, you'll find quiet and secluded places for the ascetic training of Buddhist priests in old days. In Daishyoin Temple, you'll see many unique Buddhist images and experience impenetrable darkness. And in Itsukushima Shrine, you'll be aware of Japanese traditional aesthetic values. In this tour, I'd like you to feel heart and soul of the Japanese.
