See the A-bomb Dome in Hiroshima and MiyajimaVoyagin VerifiedAdd to Wishlist
Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park is a memorial park in the center of Hiroshima City. Itsukushima Shrine is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima), best known for its "floating" torii gate.
- The A-Bomb Dome, to which a sense of sacredness and transcendence has been attributed, is situated in a distant ceremonial view that is visible from the Peace Memorial Park’s central cenotaph.
- The Itsukushima shrine was designed and built on pier-like structures over the bay so that it would appear to be floating on the water, separate from the sacred island, which could be approached by the devout.
