Sea kayaking

Sea kayaking

Sightseeing and exercise combine is the form of sea kayaking, a great way to see Miyajima's 'floating' shrine gate up close.

Setting out from Hiroshima's mainland, you will paddle the short distance to the beautiful island of Miyajima and have the unique experience of approaching Itsukushima Shrines' famous torii gate from the sea. At a full high tide you may even get to paddle through the gate itself.

InsideJapan can arrange a 3 hour sea kayaking experience with a qualified English-speaking instructor. Full equipment and training is provided.
