Miyajima is a treasure of an island in the Seto Inland Sea. It’s most famous landmark is a huge red torii, or shrine gate, rising out of the water. Erected in 1875 it's one of the largest torii in Japan and guards Miyajima's main attraction, Itsukushima Shrine. Walking around Hiroshima, it’s hard to imagine that the city was the scene of such widespread destruction over 60 years ago. Today, visit Peace Memorial Park, the city's best-known landmark, and marvel at the museums, statues, stone lanterns, memorials, and sculptures that line the streets.
