The vermillion O-torii Gate is one of the most recognizable structures in Hiroshima and forms part of the famous Itsukushima Shrine. But from June 2019, it will be covered in scaffolding as renovations works begin, which are expected to continue until August 2020. Aside from repainting the torii, structural repair work will also be carried out and visitors planning on traveling to Miyajima should keep this in mind.
