A magnificent shrine built on the sea, which is rare in the world
With a bold and original layout with the sea as the site, it is one of the most famous companies in Japan that has mastered the essence of Shinden-zukuri in the Heian period. It was built in its present form by Taira no Kiyomori in the 12th century. The precincts on the shallow beach are a graceful sight as if they were floating in the sea at high tide. The contrast with the green behind it is also exceptionally beautiful. It was registered as a World Heritage Site in 1996.
