Miyajima Cultural World Heritage

Last day was so outstanding for me (yes even in this little time). For the very first time I was able to go to Miyajima and since I can remember that I had know that this place exists I truly wanted to see it. Before I got there I had been able to see it as a tiny thing which wasn’t that far away from my accommodation. As soon as it had been in front of me I was unbelievably happy, so happy that I eventually shed some tears of happiness.

But of course this place has many other nice things as well to see, not only the well known red or let me rather say orange Torii. The guardian will protect this place and the whole island for sure.

The Toyokuni Shrine with its five-storied pagoda will welcome you soon after were able to get your eyes of the Torii.

All around you might be able to see hilarious things and sights, like the cool stone guy on the bottom of the picture.

Or this one which is especially nice to go with the person you truly love.

Somehow, I really don’t know how this could happen, I ended up in climbing the mountain.

While being rewarded the entire time with gorgeous natural places

I made it closer to the top of Mount Misen.

Looking back on what I had accomplished I felt really happy that I was able to do it. (I still wonder why I happened to go hiking in Japan. But yes, it was worth it.)

I was also really lucky with the weather while climbing up it was acceptable but not too hot and later it became really sunny.

On my way back I sneaked some peaks on the various local souvenir shops.DSC_7499

And I found some really nice things. Though I didn’t buy them, but I would like to get them at another time if it will be possible.

Another thing I really would love to have in my future appartment is one of these. They are SO beautiful.

These sweets called Momiji Manju and are one of the local specialities, at many shops you can see into the bakery and how they make them. If you like sweets at least a little you will find a flavor you like.

While walking back to the Torii I grabed some food like this squid spit which is being roasted on the picture.

And since I really love this Torii get some more pictures of it.   ┬┬  \ (^‿^✿)/

By all these pictures you might think I was alone there, but to be honest there were lots of other people as well.

However, good people who will pay their respect to the local gods.

I also got to talk to some people, like this female group. Natsuyo, Miyako and Aki are some really funny women.

On the next picture you can see Fumiko and Shigeo, they were really kind and nice to me, too. I hope to see them again, too.

Like you can see they even gave me the two presents on the right site to remember Miyajima. (The red smiling guy is also called Daruma.) Its the first time for me to see such a guy in this shape normally they happen to be really round.)

This time I really want to talk a little bit more about my accommodation. (No, I’m not going to mention why I didn’t mention the other place before more…) There were even provided lots of guides and every evening Yojiro had updated the weather forecast, high and low tide and other useful things.

On one evening I got to talk to different people from over the world, but still it was easy to feel at home there. (Ouw no, that might sound like I wouldn’t like to talk to people. No, that’s not true (I only try to avoid having people on my sightseeing pictures). So it was actually an interesting evening.

Here look at the sight which I had from here, if you look close you can also see the Torii of Miyajima.

After all Yojiro has been really kind to me, he even prepared a Japanese style bath for me and explained a lot to me. And the room was so nice to stay at. I slept very well on the Futon he prepared for me in the Japanese style room. For sure I plan to come back here it holds a warm atmosphere with a kind host.

So, close to the end of my entry let’s add just one more thing.

Feel free to leave me some nice comments. I wait for them, you won’t sadden me, right? Right? 😀

      Via AirBNB, da lässt sich so manches gute Plätzchen finden und das zu einem guten Preisleistungsverhältnis. Variert aber von Gastgeber zu Gastgeber.

    Ich sah von Ihrem Foto Bilder von Fukuoka, Takachiho? (Kyushu) und Hiroshima-Miyajima (Chugoku).
    Wenn Sie Zeit, um mehr in der Nähe von Fukuoka Lage am Flughafen zu bleiben, können Sie sehen, Kumamoto Historische Kyushu) und Yamaguchi (historische Japan). Genießen Sie bitte Japan (Westteil so weit).

      I enjoyed my time at Kyushu a lot. Unfortunately I won’t be able to stay this time longer here. Though I am happy to recieve your recommendation for my next trip to Kyushu. I will come back for sure there are so many beautiful places around. Thank you very much.
