Près d'Hiroshima : Itsukushima, le sanctuaire sur pilotis et son torii géant

Le sanctuaire shinto d'Itsukushima et son célèbre torii dans l'eau sont situés sur l'île de Miyajima, au sud d'Hiroshima. Cette porte vermillon qui trempe les pieds en bord de mer constitue un paysage classique de l’imaginaire du Japon traditionnel. Ce torii marque l'entrée du lieu le plus sacré de l'île de Miyajima.

Itsukushima Torii: renovation works

Renovation work on the main torii gate, whose base has been damaged by tidal activity, began in June 2019. Throughout this renovation work, the gate will be covered with scaffolding and a temporary bridge will connect it to the land. Protective sheeting and scaffolding will remain in place until completion of the work, scheduled for August 2020.

However, the rest of the area remains free of construction, you can still enjoy the sanctuary and its surroundings!
