The centuries-old Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima (almost, Itsukushima Jinja) is the cause of both the notoriety and the name of the island. Due to its star attraction, formally dubbed Itsukushima, the island is more popularly recognized as "Miyajima," literally Japanese "sanctuary island." The shrine is renowned throughout the world for its famous torii gate "floating."

For being constructed over water, the shrine and its torii gate are exceptional, apparently floating in the ocean during high tide. The temple complex comprises of various structures that are attached by boardwalks and backed by columns above the ocean, including a prayer room, a primary room and a noh theater stage.

Because Itsukushima Shrine's experience includes the water it is constructed on, it's nice to be conscious of the timing of the tides during one's trip. The shrine and its door tend to float above the water at high tide, and this is definitely the most scenic moment. The water flows from the bay at low tide. This is when tourists can wander out and see the door from close up.
