The Old District of Miyajima

Since the Kamakura period, the community of Miyajima has been gradually developing, and there is an atmosphere of subtle simplicity in daily life unique to Miyajima. There are excellent old fashioned techniques used in the building structures, unheard of historical monuments and legends, and a touch of the islander’s lives on the island. Please take your time to explore the area.
