Japan - Part 4
Miyajima! If you make it to Japan, I highly recommend you make the trip to Miyajima, just off the coast of Hiroshima. Miyajima is beautiful and other worldy. Siena and I had a wonderful day there and I think in hindsight we should have spent a night on the island. Next time for sure. Torii shrine. It is quite a sight to see, looks like the shrine is just floating on top of the water, completely surreal. Another thing that Miyajima is known for is the wild deer that inhabit the island.I have no idea what kind of deer they are (a pretty kind though) and although called 'wild' they were extremely tame verging on a tad annoying (one tried to take a lick of my ice cream!).
