Row a SUP and visit the World Heritage site, Itsukushima Shrine. Itsukushima Shrine has a history of 1400 years and is a power spot (location thought to be flowing with mystical energy) which will make you feel an atmosphere with a trace of an overwhelming sense of existence and gods. The Itsukushima Shrine which is built on the sea is an extremely rare shrine in the world. The Itsukushima Shrine seen from afar is also extremely beautiful, but please also enjoy the dynamic trip by SUP which you can only do here. In this plan, you can get close to the great torii gate of Miyajima. This great torii gate has a height of 16 meters and is the biggest wooden torii in Japan. Seeing the torii gate up close is very spectacular, which will definitely become an unforgettable memory. However, do note that the torii gate has been under renovation since June 2019 and hence you may not be able to see it as per normal.
A SUP is, unlike a boat, something you row yourself and with the right amount of pressure. Hence, you will feel excited and feel really fulfilled. Furthermore, different from a sea kayak, you paddle a SUP while standing so you will have a very wide view and you can feel an exhilarating feeling all over your body. Rest assured as the certified staff will politely give you a lesson. Even a beginner can enjoy SUP. Let's have a relaxing time while coming in contact with the nature of Miyajima.
