... in front of the Itsukusima Shrine. So we could appreciate the Shrine and Tori gate at high tide (we arrived at low tide) we decided to go straight to the Buddhist Temple, Daisho-in, and walk up Mount Misen, before the hoards of tourists arrived! The Daisho-in is beautiful. It is nestled in woodland at the foot of Mount Misen with fabulous gardens, a pond, pavilions and all sorts of interesting nooks and crannies filled with Buddhist artefacts. The walk ...

I don't leave the hostel until noon. Stupidly underestimating the time it would take me to get to hiroshima. I can't get the fast train but I do manage to get the right on to Osaka it takes about 4 hours because it stops at every stop. I have to change in Osaka which is ok.
