for the fave on Itsukushima Torii. I took a video and a photographs of the Itsukushima Torii on Miajima Island at 5:30 in the morning when no one else was on the beach. Ironically, across the bay is Hiroshima where the atomic bomb destroyed the city and hundreds of thousands of school children. Miajima Island is considered to not only be holy, but it is considered a god in itself. The entire island is considered to be a Shinto shrine and no birth or death is allowed on the island.
