All visitors to Miyajima visit Itsukushima shrine, but they often overlook this lovely temple nearby. It is rather a park than a temple. The main gate, which doesn't work as a gate since there is no wall anymore, stands isolated.

It is located near the exit of itsukushima Shrine, there were 2 wooden statues of protective god that guard the gate. It was quite small but still quite interesting to explore.
