The construction of old style bridges might have been good for passing boats (not that that occurs here), but sometimes they are very steep and would have been a real challenge to get over safely.
The floating torii gate at Miyajima is one of the three views of Japan. A worthwhile excursion from Hiroshima and while it is very pretty on a sunny day, the mood during rain or foggy conditions makes it no less special. Choose the right time and you either see it reflected in the waters of the shallow bay, or at low tide walk to the massive gate itself.
