Kayaking off Miyajima, full day
A sea kayak trip around the sanctuary island, Miyajima
Miyajima, the sanctuary island
An island off the coast of the city of Hiroshima so beautiful that in the Edo period, Shunsai Hayashi, a Confucian scholar, designated it as one of the three most beautiful landscapes in Japan, the "Nihon Sankei". This island is Miyajima, or "the sanctuary island". Its real name is Itsukushima, and the island is home to the Ituskushima shrine, a rare example of a shrine built on stilts, all in vermilion (in Japanese 'shu-iro', the colour representative of Japan and which has the special quality of expelling evil), and thus the gateway, the well-known Miyajima Torii, stands proudly and imposingly, with its feet in the water, at the entrance to the sacred island.
Visit Miyajima by kayak from the sea
Imagine seeing this magnificent scenery from the sea, and being able to row up to the shrine and wade under the famous Torii. This is the special experience we will provide you with on this kayak tour.
