The Daishoin Temple is a historic Japanese temple complex located on the island of Itsukushima just outside of Hiroshima. Within the temple there is a flame that is said to have been burning since the temples founding over 1200 years ago. Outside among the beautiful nature of the island is a row of prayer wheels that make a distinct sound when spun.
