The red Otorii of Itsukushima Shrine is a UNESCO and 1 of the 3 most scenic spots in Japan. The gate appears to float in the Seto Inland Sea, it is a spectacular sight from both ferry and the shore of Miyajima. But why not get a close up view and kayak through it.
Paddle park is a short walk from Maezora station. Upon our arrival Masashi-san checked our experience and sorted us out with the necessary equipment. The kayaks are light weight with rudders and therefore easy for novices to use, with a choice of a single or double. The launch site is just five minutes away. This area is also famous for oysters.
