Today’s Japan Photo: Itsukushima Shrine Torii 厳島神社鳥居

Today’s Japan Photo: Itsukushima Shrine Torii 厳島神社鳥居

For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at this lovely night time capture of the famous Itsukushima Shrine Torii. At high tide, the torii gate would appear floating in the water, and its listed as one of the “Three Views of Japan”.

From this perspective, the Torii gate looks like some gateway to a mystical civilisation that only appears at a certain time.
