ITSUKUSHIMA SHRINE

It is said that the shrine, one of the Three Scenic Views of Japan, was established as early as the 6th century by Saeki-no-Kuramoto. In the late Heian Period (12th century), the shrine building was constructed in its present form, as a "floating" shrine on the sea, funded by the warlord Taira-no-Kiyomori.
