Miyajima

Hi Pals,
When you think about Torii shrines in Japan, one of two places will come up: Fushimi Inari Taisha in Kyoto (check my post here) and the iconic Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima.
Itsukushima is known as Miyajima which literally means “shrine island.” Said that when you die your soul will cross over via boat into the next world.  I can’t suggest going to this little off the track island from Hiroshima enough!  It’s ended up being one of my favourite places within Japan so far!
