About Itsukushima Floating Torii Gate

Otorii is a red building on the beach in front of the Itsukushima Shrine in Japan and is the iconic landscape of Miyajima. When the sea rises in high tide, the semi-flooded Otorii looks mysterious and spectacular, especially when viewed from the Hitasama stage stretching out from the shrine. After the ebb, tourists can go straight to the bottom of Otorii for a closer look. At dusk, the golden sky highlights the magnificence of Otorii, making it a perfect time to take photos. The shrine and Otorii will be lit up by the lights at night, which is also beautiful.

    Big Bird Residence The Big Bird of Yandao Shrine is situated on the beach 200 meters away from the coastline, and it stands in the sea when the tide rises. Big scarlet birds live on the island's most famous landmark, built from non-perishable natural nanmu, with a height of 16 meters and a weight of 60 tons. Bird dwelling is a secular world that distinguishes the divine realm from the human inhabitants. In shrines of all sizes in Japan, bird dwelling is the most famous feature of bird dwelling. Bird dwelling stands in the middle of the sea and shows different styles with the change of tide. The first big bird house of Yandao Shrine was built in 168. Every few hundred years, the bird house will be demolished and rebuilt. Now the eighth big bird house in 1975 has been built in front of us. The roots of bird dwelling seem to be buried in the sea, but they actually stand in the sea with their own weight. When the tide is full, you can see the majesty of birds floating on the sea from the boat or from the shore. When the tide ebbs, the bird can walk under and come in close contact with it. Therefore, visitors to the island must consult the daily tide table beforehand, so as to accurately grasp the full tide and ebb time.

    Because it's going to rain tomorrow and tomorrow, I'm going to Miyashima today to take advantage of the good weather. I'm going to Miyashima from Hiroshima City by tram line 2 to Miyashima Kou and then by boat to Miyashima Kou. I can buy one-day ticket 840 yen and use it indefinitely in one day. The big bird house on the left side of Miyashima Kou is a one-day ticket. It mainly looks at the full tide and dry tide scenery time. There is a public announcement in Yandao Shrine. You can basically experience it when you come in the morning and walk in the afternoon.

    It was so beautiful that I regretted that I had only arranged for one day and not stayed overnight. The suggestion is to check the time when the tide reaches its highest and lowest point on the official website so that we can see two different faces of Big Bird House. Big birds live close to a kilometer from the wharf and have a good view along the seaside. It's almost time to go at the highest or lowest tide. After the viewing, go to the other parts of the island and have a meal. It's almost time for the next highest or lowest tide.

    Hiroshima, a coastal city in the western part of Honshu Island, Japan, was rebuilt in 1958 after being destroyed by the U.S. atomic bomb in World War II. Hiroshima, as the first city in the world seriously damaged by the atomic bomb, built the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park at the site of the atomic bomb explosion in order to pray for permanent peace. On the other hand, during World War II, Hiroshima was also Japan's base for toxic gas research and development.

    Big Bird House, arrival time is just full tide, suitable! Bird House and Yandao Shrine are both in the sea. The deer in Miyagi Island are much more gentle than Nara's. Let's touch it. Its hair is a little hard. It feels like a tiger. There are grandpa deer, honest Kanban deer in front of the store, and of course, bad deer! There is also a white-bearded shrine in the sea, and the big bird house in the sea is very spectacular both in photos and on-site viewing. It is said that touching the big bird house can bring happiness. The sea was shallow in the morning, but it was so lucky to touch it that it was completely inaccessible after the high tide in the afternoon. Please do your best to ensure safety. The defense of Miyashima is said to be very clever, and the result of divination is also full of power!

    Miyagi's Big Bird House is the only one built on the sea. When I went there, I saw it at high tide and low tide. He also took a boat ride around it and looked around it at a close range. It's quite shocking at a close look. Ticket 1200 or 2000, worth it.

    Time spent on Miyagi Island was basically in front of the bird, taking pictures of its left, right, front, back and dry tide. The forecast of dry tide and full tide can be found on the official website of Miyashima.

    In the case of high tide, the sunset and orange-red birds floating on the sea contrast to each other, and on the other side of the house there seems to be a real existence of God.

    Miyagi Island is one of the three scenic spots in Japan. When we get to Hiroshima, we will surely come here. The big bird house built near the sea has a beautiful view of Miyagi Island. Seen from a distance, the bird house is really different. It is interesting that the tide falls and the bird house will be submerged below. When the tide ebbs, we can experience the bird house. The bird house is huge. When the tide rises, the boat can sail from the bird house.

    Beauty is just a word. When the tide ebbs, you can be close-sighted. If you have jrpass, you can take the JR ferry without money in the past.
