Otorii is a red building on the beach in front of the Itsukushima Shrine in Japan and is the iconic landscape of Miyajima. When the sea rises in high tide, the semi-flooded Otorii looks mysterious and spectacular, especially when viewed from the Hitasama stage stretching out from the shrine. After the ebb, tourists can go straight to the bottom of Otorii for a closer look. At dusk, the golden sky highlights the magnificence of Otorii, making it a perfect time to take photos. The shrine and Otorii will be lit up by the lights at night, which is also beautiful.
