Miyajima Island

Famous Floating Orange Tori

Miyajima Island is a short boat ride from Hiroshima, but the day I was there it had such a warm tropical feel that it seemed light years away from the terrible history detailed in the Peace Museum.

Picture-taking day, with deer

There are deer roaming everywhere, and mountains to climb.

No deer allowed

I climbed up to Daisho-in temple and visited the variety of buildings and little statues. It was a beautiful day and I spent much longer than planned before leaving to make my way to Kyoto.
