There is a huge structure on the hillsideof the mainland facing the island of Miyajima - does anyone know what this is?

I've wondered about that myself. One person told me it was a hotel, another told me it was a convention center, and a third person told me it was a religious building. Dunno who (if any) was right. Gorilla Jones 00:48, 9 January 2007 (EST)

Itsukushima Shrine Picture

I'd like to generate some discussion on a "most useful" photo for the Itsukshima Shrine. I think a more descriptive and characteristic photo exists, which shows more of the "red-lacquered complex of halls and pathways on stilts." Do others think that the picture on the right gives travelers a better idea of what the Shrine is, and why they should visit it? Jtesla16 11:57, 9 January 2009 (EST)

Ceremonial dance at Itsukushima Shrine - Current Photo
Itsukshima Shrine - Proposed replacement for Current Photo
Thanks for initiating discussion. You might have been a little more direct in your opening, though — come right out and say that you took the photo! I took the photo on the left, so I'm as biased as you are. I think the one I took is more compelling because it shows action and something more unique to Itsukushima — I've seen no shortage of wooden orange rails while temple-hopping in Japan, and it's the water more than the stilts that sets Itsukushima apart. That said, your photo is more typical of the shape of photos on this site, so it fits into the article better. I wouldn't be offended if others want to swap it in for mine.
