First Taste Japan – Hiroshima and Miyajima

Yes it’s time for the third instalment of the videos I shot back in 2011 in Japan. This time it’s a trip to the south of Honshu, to the city of Hiroshima. Of course, Hiroshima is mostly famous for one main event – the dropping of the first atomic bomb in 1945. And I guess the Hiroshima part of this video is focussed on this – the A-Bomb Dome, the Peace Memorial Park, Museum and Memorial.

Then I take a ferry across to the Island of Miyajima, home to many temples and a famous ‘tori’ (gate) which sits in the water until the time comes in. Really special part of Japan in today’s video – Enjoy!

Thanks for popping by today – May the Journey Never End!

  1. I’ve not been to that part of Japan yet, but I’m dying to go, especially for the famed Torii gates! One day, when the world more-or-less resumes normalcy, someday…

  2. Putting Miyajima on my list of places to visit. it look beautiful. How long does the ferry take from Hiroshima? Is it like a day trip?
