Daisho-in Buddhist Temple on Miyajima Island, Japan
Once you enter Heniyokutu Cave at Daisho-in Buddhist temple, pause for an instant. As your eyes adapt to the darkness, information begin to show up – prayer offerings and composed wishes tied to the bottom of Buddhist statues, Japanese character types tracing underneath of the lighting, faint smiles on most of the icons. In the dim lighting, there’s a sense of peacefulness amidst everything.
Have a look at the fisheye photograph below to see on your own.

In the event that you go to the island of Miyajima close to the town of Hiroshima, make sure to carve out a long time to invest at Daisho-in Buddhist temple. Its grounds are protected in Buddhist statues of most shapes, sizes and decoration. They’re not just a photographer’s dream, however they furthermore tell the tale of the diversity of symbols in Japan’s variations of Buddhism.
Make sure to loaf around long enough, since it will increase the chance that you’ll capture a ceremony or two on the way.

So quite! There must be greater than a thousand lights there on the walls. And just how many shrines, I question?
Since deciding we’d begin our RTW journey in Japan, we have been racking your brains on an itinerary. We had been initially thinking about just hitting the huge 3 metropolitan areas (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka), but recently decided that people wanted to look for a few of the country’s additional attractions, and believed that Miyajima sounded actually interesting and various. If we do find yourself producing it there, we shall certainly have to have a look at this temple!
360 degree photo. Incredible.. All i possibly could feel is lights, lamps and lights
Beautiful! Appears like you each is having an enjoyable experience. I love the lights.
Awesome to learn some Japan articles, we are there in September as our initial stop on our all over the world vacation.
Wow, your panorama will be ridiculous! I can’t wait around to observe how Tokyo works out. Gerard actually wanted to visit Miyajima but unfortunately we didn’t have sufficient period. 🙁
@Sutapa: The lamps making use of their shadows and lighting really created the atmosphere to the area. Peaceful feel. We dropped track counting on the amount of Buddhist statues…
@Steph: We actually enjoyed the full time we invested at Miyajima. Not merely will be the temples (this Buddhist one + Shinto Shrine) aesthetically stunning, but there’s an excellent feel to the areas because the Japanese visitors have there been to pray, create offerings, enjoy themselves. Furthermore, we discovered Hiroshima to be among well known stops along our trip. This kind of amazed us given the unfortunate background there, but there’s an oddly optimistic and joyful feel to the area. We’ll be writing even more about Japan on the next weeks therefore perhaps a few of that information will help with your preparing aswell.
@Marshall: The lights and style were great.
@Ellen: We spent nearly one hour in this location simply gazing up at the lighting and finding information on the statues.
@Dave: Japan is a great 1st stop on your own RTW trip, even if you get a little bit spoiled there provided the efficiency and purchase of everything 🙂 Keep examining back on the next couple of weeks a we’ll end up being writing even more about Japan and offering some suggestions about favorite places.
@Kieu: Miyajima isn’t heading away, so it it’s still there when you go back to Japan. Given just how much you men loved the area, I’m producing an assumption you will be back again 1 day 🙂
Haven’t attempted stitching the panorama from Shibuya Crossing in Tokyo, but hope everything fits together properly. If that’s the case, you’ll see within the next little while!
