Three reasons why I love Miyajima:
- The beautiful Itsukushima Shinto Shrine that sits on the coast of Miyajima Island. During low tide, you can walk out to it and put a little offering of a few coins into the barnacles that have formed on it. At high tide you can kayak right through it.
- Daisho-In Temple that sits at the top of the island not only provides beautiful views of the shrine but it also holds its own as a place to lose hours of time wondering through.
- Tame deer you can pet...enough said!
I love Miyajima, so much that I've taken the time to visit it three times since I arrived. I would highly recommend it as a place to see while traveling in Japan.
