kyoto hiroshima


again by shinkansen we travelled from kyoto station to Hiroshima, about two hours.
we walked to the Peace Memorial Park and visited the impressive museums in silence
in the early afternoon we took a local train to the island of Miyajima and saw the famous red floating Tori and the island temples. we were lucky since we saw a shintoist religious cerimony with monks playing traditional instruments and dancing on the platform in front of the tori.
