It is considered the floating shrine on the sea. The plan was originally to go in the afternoon, but the tide might have been too high to get up close and in person, so instead we went in the morning.
A ferry ride would get us over to the island and this was me taking it all in.
Miyajima was beautiful and I could’ve spent the entire day there! But we were given only 2 hours to sightsee, shop and lunch. Most of us gave up our lunch so we could shop and sightsee more and settling for some ice cream for our lunch!
So picturesque and looked just what you imagined Japan to be!
Mary Alice and Midori. I love the way that the rickshaw driver had her hold her hand. Too clever!
Some of us took a rickshaw ride… which I was going to do later in the week, but it never happened! Next time I go I will for sure.
There were a lot of wild deer on Miyajima and I think that this one was looking for lunch!
Some of us made friends with the deer!
and me, what did I do? well that’s a story for another day!
and for now I will say…sayonara
