And we know we're WAY behind!
23.03.2015 - 25.03.2015
The last several days have been really travel/tourist intensive. So we've fallen woefully behind in our blog. We've gone through 3 prefectures: Hiroshima, Wakayama, and Okayama, up and down mountains, and to the sea. We're gonna need a vacation just to recover from our vacation! In the interests of getting something up on the blog--especially for those of you who aren't on Facebook, here are some pictorial highlights.
The famous torii gate at Miyajima, low tide.
Pagoda at Miyajima
Pagoda from Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima
Two women dressed up as Heian princesses at Miyajima!
A lovely selection of Miyajima seafood at our ryokan.
Futons laid out in our ryokan room. They were as comfy as they look. The big problem was that the room was ALWAYS cold!
Miyajima torii gate at high tide.
Miyajima is also known for its rice paddles. This one is billed as the largest in the world!
Miyajima is a great place to people watch. And did we mention the tame deer?
