The climate of Miyajima Island (Japan)
Miyajima Island is famous for the Itsukushima- shrine that can be found on the island. This gateway to the island stands in the water at high-tide. Most visitors arrived here via the Japanese Sea. The island was so sacred that not everyone was allowed to set foot on land here. Most people had to stay on the wooden quays. Nowadays the shrine is one of the most famous attractions in Japan and it is a UNESCO world heritage site.
Miyajima has a warm sea climate. The southern location of the island is responsible for minimal differences in temperature between the seasons. Humidity figures are high all year round; rain falls all year round as well. Temperatures are moderate.
