Must Try Oysters From Miyajima Island

After checking out Itsukushima Shrine, we decided to walk around the streets of Miyajima Island. The plan was to take the lift to the top of Mount Misen.

Japan Travel

Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima Island

As you travel through Japan, you will undoubtedly notice the many torii, or religious shrines. However, there is no torii more dramatic than Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima Island. At low tide, visitors can walk up to the torii. At high tide, visitors enjoy the torii from a distance. When we visited, it was raining heavily. It was dark, gray, gloomy, and seemingly magical. Another UNESCO World Heritage site checked off of my list.
