A must see when visiting Miyajima - the various temples and shrines are amazing. A bit of a walk and lots of steps but well worth the effort

Well worth the 99 step climb to the top. Take your shoes off before entering and just admire the beautiful interior of this Buddhist temple.

The most beautiful temple in Miyajima. Daishoin Temple wasn't part of our itinerary, but after I saw a picture of it, we decided to go and it was totally worth it.
