Floating Torii ( gates)

“I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world” Saduko Sasaki (young girl who developed leukemia from Hiroshima bombing)

The floating torii is the "gate" to Itsukushima Shrine on Miajima island off the coast of Hiroshima.

Located just outside of Hiroshima is a sacred island. The torii indicates this. The island is considered one of the most scenic in all of Japan, and I would guess this torii is the most photographed in the country.
