^^from the ferry^^
This was my favorite day of our trip. This island near Hiroshima and Iwakuni was so beautiful and so charming. It's now on my list of most charming little places I've been to (which I should make a real list, because all I can think of right now is Annapolis, Maryland ha). Miyajima is a sacred island, said to be where the Gods live.
I loved the views and the shrines and temples on this island. I loved the little shops and food stands on this island. But, what I think I loved the most were the wild deer that freely wander through the town. They are calm and not afraid of people at all, especially if you have food. It was pretty hilarious to see unsuspecting people have deer come up all of a sudden and take a huge bite out of their map or paper bag.
^^he showed up right as Victor finished his oysters so he could lick the plate^^
^^I love this pic for so many reasons. It looks like we are besties, and the Japanese ladies' faces are the best^^
