The Floating Torii

The Floating Torii

*FYI – The floating torii gate is currently undergoing renovations and is partially covered by scaffolding. Check the status before you visit.

The first torii was constructed in the 12th century and was also paid for by Taira-no Kiyomori. The present-day structure was built in 1875 and measures about 50 feet tall. If you arrive on the island during low tide you may walk the ocean floor out to the gate.
