Built above the sea of Miyajima, high tide makes this shrine more beautiful, as it looks as if it is floating on the water. The main building and the corridor of the shrine total 275 meters in length, and there is a Taka-Butai (High Stage) and a Hira-Butai (Open Stage) where traditional Bugaku (musical court dances) were held. At low tide, visitors can walk to the Otorii gate, which rests about 200 meters offshore from the shrine.
