Photographer's Note

The famous floating torii gate at Miyajima, which is south of Hiroshima in Honshu and an integral part of the Itsukushima Shrine. I missed the sunset, as I arrived at dusk, & had to find a place to stay. But I did manage to snap this attractive night scene.

According to Wikipedia, its correct name is 'Miyashima'. 'Shima' which means island, has been corrupted in English to 'jima'. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miyajima,_Hiroshima
