    What to Expect

    Row a SUP and visit the World Heritage site, Itsukushima Shrine. Itsukushima Shrine has a history of 1400 years and is a power spot (location thought to be flowing with mystical energy) which will make you feel an atmosphere with a trace of an overwhelming sense of existence and gods. The Itsukushima Shrine which is built on the sea is an extremely rare shrine in the world. The Itsukushima Shrine seen from afar is also extremely beautiful, but please enjoy the dynamic trip by SUP which you can only do here. In this plan, you can get close to the great torii gate of Miyajima. This great torii has a height of 16 meters and is the biggest wooden torii in Japan. Seeing the torii gate up close is very spectacular, which will definitely become an unforgettable memory.

    A SUP is, unlike a boat, something you row yourself and with the right amount of pressure, you will feel excited and feel really fulfilled. Rest assured as the certified staff will politely give you a lesson. Even a beginner can enjoy SUP. A special course is provided for advanced participants. People with SUP experience will embark from a beach on the other side of Miyajima and will go by SUP for around 2 kilometers.
