Miyajima, l'isola con il santuario sul mare

Complemento essenziale per una visita a Hiroshima, Miyajima (vero nome Itsukushima) è uno dei siti più visitati del Giappone, soprattutto grazie al santuario shintoista lì e al grande torii con i piedi nell'acqua. Scopri questo piccolo pezzo di isola paradisiaca soprannominata "l'isola degli dei", poiché l'intera isola è sacra.

Miyajima, the sacred island

Miyajima means "island shrine", and it is the common name of this small island of 30 km2, which is officially called Itsukushima (厳島). Miyajima is located in the Seto Inland Sea, not far from Hiroshima. The island is largely covered with forests and dominated by the small Mount Misen which rises to 530 meters high. About 2000 people and a few hundred deer inhabit the island all year round.

Miyajima has been considered sacred for a very long time; since 806, the famous Buddhist monk Kôbô Daishi climbed Mount Misen and chose to establish it as the ascetic site of the Shingon sect of Buddhism. Until the Meiji Restoration in the 19th century, the island followed the principle of avoiding kegare (religious impurity) thus remaining perfectly "pure"; in this sense, no one was to die there, and women were not allowed to give birth there.
