Itsukushima Jinja

Since the has an open theme this week, we can post whatever we like. And since I still hadn't posted these photos from our trip to Miyajima at the end of March, here are a few favourites from Itsukushima Jinja.

  13. Thanks everyone for your comments and compliments! :)
    I'm so glad we got a chance to visit Miyajima, and I can completely understand why it's considered one of Japan's three most scenic spots!

  14. What beautiful photos. I feel more peaceful just looking at them. Thank you!

    I've had this fascination with Japanese authors as of late. I'm not sure why. I've been reading some Murakami and find myself thinking about his stories often. At your suggestion, I've ordered Tales of Moonlight and Rain. I think I will like it.
