From Hiroshima, the tiny island of Miyajima (a Unesco World Heritage Site) was an easy day trip. The island is famous for its torii (shrine) gate out in the water – although we were there at low tide so didn’t quite see the floating effect. Behind the gate there is also a huge floating shrine, hall and stage, all in the bright vermilion colour.

The surrounding streets were really pretty, lots of cheap food vendors & the occasional deer trying to get in on the snacks!
