A Day at Miyajima Island – Japan
I have just got back from Japan, and whilst the memories are fresh in my mind, I thought I should write some posts about my favourite day trips in Japan. We spent a day at Miyajima Island, in Hiroshima.
A Day at Miyajima Island:
It was a beautiful day out, and we left nice and early so that we could have a full day out. Despite the heat (nearing 37 degrees Celsius), we had an amazing time.
The journey to Miyajima was by train and by ferry. I loved the ferry journey because it was a lovely, sunny day and we could see the Torii in the distance. Our first stop was the Torii and the Shrine. They were both so beautiful.
We had the option of walking up Mount Misen at Miyajima, however, we decided we needed to get the Ropeway. The view from the mountain top was stunning. To be honest, we didn’t climb right to the top after getting the ropeway, as it was just too hot.
When we got back to the town, we continued to wander around. One of the highlights of the day was having a maple leaf (Momji) treat. It was delicious. I had a custard cream filled one. I’m dreaming of them now, and I wish I had been able to bring some back with me!
I didn’t manage to get a photo of the maple leaf, as I ate it too quickly!
The dress I decided to wear that day was one that I bought in Nara. They are super comfy and were perfect for the hot weather. The dress has a really pretty print and a floaty and cute.
