Miyajima Island Morning Stroll

7-days wandering solo in summer Japan
may 28 - june 04, 2013 tuesday to tuesday

Hiroshima solo day-trip

Initial plan is to visit Hiroshima city center but due to underestimated travel time from Hiroshima JR station by looking on the electronic schedule boards, I immediately decided to visit Miyajima Island. In addition, I'd like to visit the mountain as early as possible for the morning breeze reason. By the way, roundtrip ferry fare is covered also by JR pass. I roamed this island from 1000H until 1230H only, cannot went further due to knee joint attained last Mt. Kinabalu climb.

Miyajima island is one of the crown jewels of Japan, and certainly one of its finest views. Located off the coast of Hiroshima, the serene beauty of the island is an essential coda to that city. Miyajima has been considered a holy place for most of Japanese history. In 806 AD, the monk Kōbō Daishi ascended Mt. Misen (535m) and established the mountain as an ascetic site for the Shingon sect of Buddhism.
