World Heritage / Itsukushima Shinto Shrine

Criteria: (i) (ii) (iv) (vi) | Date of Inscription: 1996 | Location: Hiroshima Prefecture | Justification for Inscription



- Itsukushima Shinto Shrine is my favorite place. The shrine built on the sea is unique and mysteriously beautiful. I'm impressed that it has been preserved despite disasters such as typhoon. (USA)

- No other shrine has the dramatic beauty of Itsukushima. Best approached from the sea (I rend a boat), best on a clear night, hope there will be some ceremony in daytime. (USA)

- Beautiful scenery. A little far, but worth it to see, specially if you are in Hiroshima. (Chile)
