On the second day, I visited Miyajima, one of the most scenic spots in Japan.
You might have heard of it if you are interested in Japan;)
To get to Miyajima island, I took this ferry.
At first, I was afraid of getting sea sick but it took only about 10 mins.
After a short time, I found this famous Torii, shrine gate, built in the sea.
There is also well-known Itsukushima shrine in the island.
It was really solemn and I was touched.
If you go there on weekends, you may see the wedding ceremony.
After looking around that shrine, we climbed Mt. Misen.
First of all, we took this aerial tramway and then, walked to the top.
Because I don't like walking that much, I hesitated to go to the top
but people who passed on the way cheer us up and we could do it!
(It took about 40 mins)
The next time, I want to stay one night there!
