16/18 The floating Torii

The symbol of a shrine is its gate, or Torii. It represents the division between the everyday world and the divine world.

Maybe this is one of the most famous Torii in Japan. You can find in the little island of Miyajima. This island is considered sacred land and in the past all the ships had to cross this gate if they wanted to go in this place.
