Itsukushima’s “The Great Torii” – From a Distance

I could not hide my joy when I approached the the island of Itsukushima on a ferry.

What appeared before my eyes was the red colored Great Torii, straddling over the clear water.DSCF0317A

In the background were the green hills and the Itsukushima Shrine.

I have seen many photos of the Torii gate before , but never have I seen it so outstanding against the tranquil environment.
