The floating torii MIYAJIMA
Itsukushima shrine at high tide.
Itsukushima Shrine's large floating torii (大鳥 大) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Japan. The torii view with Mount Misen in the background is named one of the “three most famous views in Japan” along with Amanohashidate sandbank and Matsushima bay. It is also called "the gate of Japan".
The torii, which seems to float at high tide, is only accessible from the shore at low tide.
The shrine has had a torii since 1168, although the current one only dates from 1875. It is 16 meters high and has four uprights (ryōbu 両 部, or yotsuashi 四脚 style) to give it more stability. . Since its construction, it has never been completely restored. So that it does not rot with seawater, we practice sugekae (挿 げ 替 え), a technique that consists of only changing the submerged parts every hundred years.
