A much smaller Temple and grounds but also a very nice place to visit. The buildings are very pretty and in use. It's an active worshipping center. You can sit and enjoy the moment and take in the burning incense. Nice slower pace activitie.

All visitors to Miyajima visit Itsukushima shrine, but they often overlook this lovely temple nearby. It is rather a park than a temple. The main gate, which doesn't work as a gate since there is no wall anymore, stands isolated.

Good things can come in small packages and one gets the feeling that its' small size does not deminish its' importance to those who worship there. Worth a brief visit.

It's nice but it doesn't stand out next to the other attractions. You'll probably see it as you exit Itsukushima shrine.

This is a small shrine that sits in the middle of the area. Quite literally just a shrine and some additional shrines and shops, it's a timely reminder of how spiritual the Japanese culture and people are.
