From the cabin


Passengers from the mainland to Miyajima are enjoying the view of O-Torii (World Cultural Heritage Site) from the window of ferry cabin.  This can be happened only on JR lines not on Matsudai lines.

Miyajima Strait today


We  had pretty heavy rain in these 2 days.  Rain does not stay here but left much moisture around this area.  It is very hot and sticky now.

Nasty hot


We are having nasty hot days after the announcement of the beginning of the rainy season in this area.  Was the announcement true?  It seems to be in summer.

Lives around Miyajima


Happened to find Japanese cormorants from the ferry pier.  You might be surprised to see various wild lives on and around Miyajima.  The more you pay attention, the more you could find.

16m high


Tourists are surrounding the main column of O-Torii (the main gate of Itsukushima Shrine; World Cultural Heritage Site).  Gate is 16 m high.  You can catch the size of Gate in comparison with human.  It is large indeed.

turtles


You can meet these turtles at Miyajima Aquarium: “Miyajimarine”.  They are not wonders of the sea but the pond.

Hidden stream


Ebb tide scenery of O-Torii (grand gate of Itsukushima Shrine: World Cultural Heritage Site).  You can see a shallow stream which runs through Gate to the ocean.  This stream usually flows under the sea and cannot be seen.  It shows itself at ebb tide only.

Wonders under the sea


You can find many wonders under the sea here in this aquarium of “Miyajimarine”.  This is one of them; octopus.  It is really grotesque but we can catch something about another world.  You can get this aquarium for another 10 minutes walk from the exit of Itsukushima Shrine (World Cultural Heritage Site).
