At present, repair work is being carried out due to the aging of the large Otorii. Since 2019, large-scale renovation work has started, with scaffolding throughout the Otorii.The period is undecided, but it will take about 2 years. There is no impact on the visit to Itsukushima Shrine, and the lights are up as usual. Please check the website of Itsukushima Shrine or Miyajima Tourism Association for detailed situation and construction schedule.
