Proudly one of Japan’s three most beautiful views, Itsukushima’s enormous and iconic red torii gate stands tall emerging from the ocean. Miyajima is walkable on foot, and is home to plenty of street food and a number of other religious sites such as Daishoin and Senjokaku. The background of Mount Misen offers leafy hiking trails and a gorgeous view down onto the quaint local town.
