We left Fukuoka this morning to Fukuyama to stay at another hotel, but we stopped at Hiroshima to visit Miyajima on our way. To get to Miyajima you need to take Shinkansen from Hakata to Hiroshima, then change onto ordinary JR line from Hiroshima to Miyajimaguchi then a short ferry ride to Miyajima. We then had to reverse our journey and take Shinkansen from Hiroshima to Fukuyama. The trains and the ferries are not so frequent, and we had to be at Fukuyama at a certain time to be picked up by the hotel staff, so we could not make a mistake with all the connections, and it was a little stressful, but all went well. In fact we got to Miyajima a little earlier than our plan so we were able to take our time.


When we got to Miyajima we decided to have lunch first so the restaurant wouldn’t be very busy; we had Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki at “Momo-Chan”. To be honest we much prefer Kansai style of okonomiyaki – sorry if you are from Hiroshima.


Sakura was out in bloom here and there, which was lovely to see, and we enjoyed seeing the Torii in the sea.


The last time we were there was about 31 years ago. It’s very photogenic, I couldn’t help taking many photos.
