Popularly called Miyajima--"Shrine Island"--this small island near Hiroshima, Japan, has one main shrine dedicated to the three Shinto goddesses of seas and storms, and numerous other shrines and Buddhist temples. It is most famous for the "floating torii" or shrine gateway seen on approaching the island.
