2. Today I went to Miyajima, a beautiful island near Hiroshima. Shinto temples and gates are absolutely breathtaking. Had a delicious oyster udon for lunch and went to a restaurant that served whale for dinner. Didn't have any though :'(
Tomorrow I'll be going to the Hiroshima gardens and then catching the Shinkansen to Kyoto. Looking really forward to that, should be lovely. Maybe hit a tea house with some maiko and hopefully buy a sword or something equally as cool.
I want to come back to this place very soon with friends rather than family. I would be doing significantly more living rather than sightseeing if with friends.
I also needs to buy a bottle of Suntory whiskey duty free to drink with someone when I get home. Who wants in?
