Floating vermilion gate in Miyajima Island

Miyajima Island is the highlight of the tour. When the tide is high, the vermilion torii gate looks floating, and when it’s low, you can reach there by walking on the sand. Both are fun experiences!

Our customer tried origami, a Japanese traditional art. We make cranes by folding papers and offer it at the memorial monument.
