Itsukushima Shinto Shrine was completed by Taira-no-Kiyomori during the Heian Period, and its splendor is still intact today. The Gakubo and Kadomarodo shrines are viewed from the western side of the Hirabutai stage in the main shrine building. In the distance is Toyokuni Shrine (Senjokaku Hall) on Tonooka Hill with cherry trees in full bloom and the five-story pagoda (Important Cultural Asset) constructed in 1407. On the left is the grass-covered Mt. Kamei.
