Hiroshima, Japan overview

Set on a bay on the Inland Sea, Hiroshima was the infamous site of the first atomic bomb explosion of August, 1945. But perhaps the best reason to visit Hiroshima is the enchanting island of Miyajima with its famous Itsukushima Shinto shrine, considered one of Japan's three most beautiful sights. Its famous torii stands just offshore--a tall, vermilion-colored symbol of Japan that appears to float during high tide.

Cancelled our excursion as it required a lot more walking than we wanted and the shrine we wished to see was covered with scaffolding. Instead took a cab to the Peace Park and very pleasant.
