The Itsukushima Shrine is a UNESCO world heritage site, and national treasure of Japan. It is best known for the floating torii gates seen in the image.

A travel order for Kaizawa to travel to Hiroshima is found on the same page as this image (SKalb-p.13-01), so we can assume that this picture was taken between February 21-24, 1947
