What people are saying:

This is really an amazing attraction, one of the must-visit places on Miyajima. According to history, it is said that it was built during the Hideyoshi era, but it has not been completed since it was suspended midway. The loft is located on the top of a small hill. After climbing a section of the mountain road, you can see this simple color Senjokaku, which is completely different from the Itsukushima Taisha below. Qiandi is a unit of area, but there is no concept of how big it is. After seeing it, it is really a super large platform with a very wide view. There is an extended platform on the side facing the sea. You can sit on it and look out. It is also officially because it is not completed. On the contrary, it seems very imposing, which can be regarded as a characteristic of the Azuchi era. The wooden pavilion is covered with various plaques, and they are basically all Chinese calligraphy, which is consistent with the Chinese aesthetic habits. In addition, there are many pictures with rich colors. But there are no things that belong to that era, and all that can be seen are added by later generations. It's always recommended. Together with the five-storied pagoda, it is a place worth visiting.

    NICE BUILDING NEXT TO PAGODA

    This is barebones but definitely visiting since it is next to the pagoda and has good vantage views of the city and hills.

    Ancient shrine on a hill

    Senjokaku Shrine is perhaps overshadowed by the more brilliant 5 story pagoda Gojuno To just a few steps away. Nonetheless it’s quite an ancient architecture to behold. It’s situated on a hill close ...

    It's Worth The Time!

    Senjokaku is an enormous building on a hill overlooking Itsukujima Shrine complex below. You pay about a dollar, remove your shoes, and you get to take in the views from this ancient landmark. It rain...
