Located on the Island of Itsukushima, on the bay in front of Hiroshima, Miyajima is a very small and quiet town, where deer can be seen wondering around loose amongst the vegetation, where the cherry flowers grow. It is very famous for its Torji, the gateway to the Itsukushima-Jinja sanctuary, and that it seems to be floating on the ocean when the tide is high, next to the Monastery.
