Itsukushima Shrine

It is said that Itsukushima Shrine, one of the Three Scenic Views of Japan, was established by Saeki-no-Kuramoto.
In the late Heian Period, the current shrine was constructed in its present form, as a shrine on the sea, with the assistance of Taira-no-Kiyomori.

The conception of a shrine whose grounds include the sea, with its form ever changing with the ebb and flow of the tides, is like nothing else in the world. In December of the year Heisei 8 (1996), Itsukushima Shrine was registered as a World Heritage Site.
