Miyajima Tide Times 2019

Time your visit to Miyajima to maximum effect by checking out when you can see Itsukushima Shrine at high and low tide.

Go straight to the tide timetables.

Itsukushima Shrine and it’s giant O-torii gate at high tide is one of Japan’s most iconic sights. The torii gate looks amazing in its apparent “floating” state, and it’s quite something to walk through the corridors of Itsukushima Shrine with the water lapping up through the floor boards.

At low tide, we love to walk out to the torii gate. Looking up from below you can truly appreciate its bulk and get a closer look at its design. You can peeking under the shrine buildings themselves at low tide too.

The time between high and low tides varies, but is usually around 6 or 7 hours. If you time your visit right you may be able to catch both tides with a tour of the rest of Miyajima – visiting Daisho-in Temple, climbing Mt Misen etc – in between.

  • The great O-torii shrine gate appears to float when the tide level is over 250cm.
  • You can walk out to the O-torii shrine gate when the tide level is below 100cm

      Hi Sandy
      Thanks for visiting 🙂
      They are coming, but it will take a little time to dig out the tide times and get them all on this page. Are there are any particular dates we can check for you?

    Hello,
    We will be in Hiroshima on April 9 and 10,2019.
    As you can imagine we are very interested in knowing the High/Low Tide details for those dates so that we can plan accordingly.

    Thank you in advance!

        Hi Paul,
        Thank you so much … can you tell me what ‘the Half’ Tide Type means.
        And why for some dates (for example April 9) there is only 1 high tide.
        Needless to say I want to make sure I time my visit just right. 🙂
        Thank you … again! … Pina

          Hi again
          Half tide (or middle tide) is half way between the spring tides (when the range between high and low tide is the greatest) and neap tides (when the range between high and low tide is the least).

          The reason for the blank tides is, as you’ll see if you look at April 9 & 10, is that the high or low tide is after midnight, so falls on the following day.

          I hope this clarifies things,

          Paul

    Hello.
    I will be there on 23rd May 2019. Im not sure if im reading this guide correctly but can you please confirm if im right.
    Low tide will begin 6.19am through till 11.53am. High tide will begin 11.53am until 6.17pm when low tide will begin again through till 20mins past midnight.
    Is this correct?

    Thank you

      Hi Dom
      24:20 340 11:53 292 06:19 132 18:17
      Apologies for the confusion.

      The tide will be at its lowest at 06:19 and 18:17
      The tide will be at its highest at 11:53

      So the water will gradually get lower through the night until 06:19 when it will be at its lowest.

      It will then gradually rise until it reaches its highest point at 11:53, after which it will start to go down until at its lowest again at 18:17.
      It will gradually rise to another high tide at 1am the next morning.

      I hope this makes things clearer and helps with your planning.

      Hi Dom

      Apologies for the delayed reply. To be honest, there is more than enough to do on Miyajima to fill the 6 hours between high and low tide, so I would recommend getting there for when the water is at its highest and planning to spend the rest of the afternoon on the island.

      Hello Weerachai

      Sorry for the delayed reply. It’s usually recommended that you don’t walk out to the torii gate unless the water is at a level of 100cm or less. You could get a little wet at 164!

      I’m sure you will have a wonderful visit anyway and you be one of the last people to see the torii gate before a 2-year maintenance project starts in June.

    We plan to visit mid December this yr. Is it true that the tori gate will be under maintenance? Will the beach still be open for people to dig for clams?
