Itsukushima Shrine becomes the sea before one of eyes.
When the sea becomes the high tide, seawater reaches to the step of the torii.
A torii seems to float in the sea.
The contrast with green of Mt. Misen of the rear and the red of the torii and the blue of the sea is totally like the Dragon’s Palace.
