Hi! This is Kana!

My friend came to Miyajima by hitchhiking!

It has passed half year since I came here.

I knew many things about Island.

Now I can explain for you what a point, what a good place.

From Miyajimaguchi(our hostel's side) to Miyajima Island,

There are 2 ferry companies.

"JR ferry" and " Matsudai ferry". 

If you have JR rail pass, you can take JR ferry for free.

If you don't have that, you can take both companies.

In that case, it better to buy one way ticket because

it gonna be same price to buy return tickets,

and you don't know which ferry do you take when you back.

Also if you take JR  ferry from 9 am to 16 pm,
you will see "Otori-gate" from the ferry.

On the ferry, please get the right side.

You will see Otori-gate in front of you!

After pass that, the Mountain which is behind the gate

looks like a half Buddha's face!!

Can you see that?

Come here and see that!!!

This is a traditional craft of the town of Yanai.

Yanai is located Yamaguchi prefecture, an hour and a half from Miyajimagushi by JR Sanyo Line.
There are some traditional architectures, soy source factories and interesting museums.
Moreover, when you visit Yanai town on 13th August, you can meet the gold fish lantern festival.
On the day, the charming town is decorated thousands of gold fish lanterns and large size lantern cars are paraded the main street.

Hello, this is Mio.

A new sushi restaurant "Hanamizuki" was opened last week in Miyajimaguchi.

It is at the second floor so that you can enjoy both the nice viewing and tasty foods.
Located a grate place just next to the JR ferry terminal.

The cable car on Miyajima Mt. Misen will stop the operation between 7th July 2014 and 18th July 2014 due to the maintenance.
However, you can enjoy the nice view from Mt.Misen after 90 min hiking by your own foot.

By the way, a typhoon is getting closer to western Japan and starting to Japan tour this week.
If you are traveling in Japan this week, please check the weather forecast and prepare for the heavy rain before you head to the next destination.

Hello, it is Mio.

The following is an artwork of Japanese calligraphy called "Shodo".

The meaning of these letters is "Miyajima".

Today a Shodo artist visited our hostel and introduced some of his works.
Most Japanese people learned Shodo at elementary school but it is difficult to wright such a stylish letter,
