A Visual Diary, Miyajima

Miyajima, often referred to as the "Island of the Gods" is one of Japans most beautiful cultural centres. As a world heritage listed site the small sea side town is surrounded by the Seto Inland Sea, it shines a bright light upon a region with such a terrible past. Alike the Gion districts of the ancient capital Kyoto, Miyajima displays a true cultural heart for the nation and is a beautiful display of its rich culture and traditions. The island town is well known for the world famous Great Torii, a great shire seemingly floating in the middle of the harbour. However the vast pagodas, dense villages and compressed ally's can be found to be where the islands true charm lies.

Take a stroll through the early hours of the morning, as the sun rises over the temples and alleys of Miyajima...
