Do you go to Miyajima only for the shrine?
As everyone knows, Miyajima has a very famous floating shrine, stone monks’ temple, aquarium, and so on… Nowadays, the island itself is known as spiritual power spot.
Some hundreds of year ago, nobody was allowed to live on this island except the Gods, however now there are some residents on the island but no cemetery is allowed to be built because of the old customs.
Now, we will offer a adventure spiritual trekking tour for you!! After the visiting to the World Heritage shrine “Itsukushima-Jinja”, we are going to trek through the Miyajima’s primeval forest to the top of Mt. Misen. During the trekking, you might see some wild monkeys or deer. (If you are lucky, you could see a sacred pure white fox)
On the top, you can see a 360 degrees stunning view of Setouchi islands. There is also a beautiful ocean studded with a lot of small islands. (The view got 3 stars from Michelin green guide).
As part of lunch, a big rice ball will be offer as a light meal while you are enjoying the view. When we go down, we will stop and visit a temple “Misen-hondo” where the eternal flame from about 1200 years ago is kept.
The ropeway is also a fun attraction for going down!! Let’s refresh ourselves and see the most beautiful view of Setouchi Island and get some luck from the
spiritual power spot!!
