Itsukushima Shrine in Japan, Miyajima

The Itsukushima Shrine is a Shinto shrine on the Island of Itsukushima in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima. I visited Itsukushima in December 2007 and was very impressed. The shrine is dedicated to the three daughters of Susano-o no Mikoto, Shinto deity of seas and storms and brother of the great sun deity, Amaterasu. The Itsukushima Shinto Shrine is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
