Abstract/Summary Miya-jima is an important Shinto shrine located close to Hiroshima in the Insland sea (Seto Sea). The Itsukushima shrine was first build in AD 592 and rebuilt in 1168 in the same scale as today. The 16-m tall Torii gate was built in 1875. It marks the entrance of the shrine and indicates that all the island forms the shrine.
