Adventures of Tako, Ebi and Sakana: Day 4 (Miyajima, Hiroshima)

Hiroshima and Miyajima is one of my favouritest place in Japan!

Took the Shinkansen from Shin-Osaka to Hiroshima (2hours!). Went to Miyajima first in the morning. To reach there, we need to take a ferry! =)) I love ferries coz it makes you feel like you are really on vacation!



Some of the views on board.

And we finally see the infamous Tori gate! Apparently, can walk under it during low tide but we din manage to wait till low tide.

Deers! Really silly though. They like to eat paper! And many were seen snatching and eating tourists maps!

And of course shots with the Tori gate!

Steps leading the route to the tori gate.

Got something about the lamp posts that I like!

View of the red houses coz we dun wanna pay the entrance fee to go in! Haha!

The boat to bring tourists through the tori gate during high tide!

Shops along the way.

Big spatula! And the "postcards" that can only be sent locally. =(


Honestly, I could not get tired of these shrines!

Of course when you go up, you need to go down!

After lunch at Okonomimura, we headed to the Atomic Bomb site.

This is the A-Dome, serving as a reminder of the tragedy of the first nuclear bomb use.

Being a little cheeky.

Children memorial.

Not sure what this place is called but it houses the paper cranes made by students, as a symbol of world peace.

Pretty aren't they?

The memorial sculture.

Sculpture with part of the museum behind.

One of the exhibit in the museum which showed the time when the atomic bomb was dropped (8.15am, 6 Aug 1945).

A jump shot collage to lighten up the post.
