    ... stop was Miyajima Island, the location of another World Heritage Site - the Itsukushima Shrine and its Tori gate. It took about 45 minutes by boat to get to the island. By the afternoon, the sun was blazing hot and the temperature was in the hight 20's. From the dock, we walked visited a local arts shop where the popular local handicrafts are made . Wooden rice paddles were invented in this area so every gift shop had dozens of styles of rice paddles. Also popular are wooden ...

    ... down to the village via the cable to find some real food for lunch.

    The island is well known for two foods - its fresh seafood (especially oysters), and the sweet maple leaf shaped cakes.
