Miyajima, also known as shrine island, is a little island off the coast of Hiroshima. There is a giant torii gate that looks like it is floating in the ocean. We had a beautiful walk down the coast to the shrine itself, with many little shops and restaurants lining the pathway. Along the way were deer just randomly strolling with tour groups and occasionally accosting and trying to eat people's stuff.

All caught up! We are taking a rest day today to recover from some unfortunate injuries. I dislocated my knee while we were here today and it's pretty swollen. But, after a day of rest it is feeling pretty good. We have a few change of plans we are going to have to make. We are not going to make it down to Osaka, instead we are going to take our time in Kyoto the next couple of days and then we are off to Mt. Fuji. Thanks for taking the time to follow us on our adventure!
