Such a beautiful peaceful place with so much history. You take off your shoes when you go and they have little sandals. Great place to catch some cool air in the summer.

There is a good view of Itsukushima shrine and the ferry wharf area from this shrine. It is a very old wooden building with some interesting decorative features. There is some restoration work currently happening.
