Even in the rain this place is #magical. Enjoying my #morning #coffee from the deck off our suite to the sounds of cascading water and birds.

Tonight we are staying at Kowakien Tenyu in Hakone. A spa set atop the #mountains with #amazing #gardens and #waterfalls cascading outside our room. Taken with my iPhone

#200mph on #bullettrain on our way to #hakone from #hiroshima

From our hotel room in #hiroshima we say #goodmorning and #goodbye as on this #rainy day we head out on the #bullettrain to #hakone

The five-story Pagoda is a sight to behold. This structure was restored in 1533 and stands at 27.6 meters high. It is most well-known for housing the Buddha of Medicine. This structure sits proudly near the water, and is even more picturesque if you visit during cherry blossom season, when it is surrounded by blossoming trees. #fivestorypagoda #hiromashima #miyajima

Itsukushima, also known as Miyajima, is a small island in Hiroshima Bay, western Japan. It is known for its forests and ancient temples. Just offshore, the giant, orange Great Torii Gate is partially submerged at high tide. It marks the entrance to the Itsukushima Shrine, which was first built in the 12th century. Nearby, the Museum of History and Folklore has cultural artifacts in a 19th-century merchant's home.

I think we are going to #miyajimaisland today

#hiroshimacastle #hiroshima #japan Hiroshima Castle (広島城 Hiroshima-jō), sometimes called Carp Castle (鯉城 Rijō), was a castle in Hiroshima, Japan that was the home of the daimyō (feudal lord) of the Hiroshima han (fief). The castle was constructed in the 1590s, but was destroyed by the atomic bombing on August 6, 1945. It was rebuilt in 1958, a replica of the original that now serves as a museum of Hiroshima's history before World War II.

#atomicbombdome #hiroshima At 8:15am on 6th August 1945, the first atomic bomb in human history was dropped on Hiroshima. Although, the Atomic Bomb Dome was located almost directly underneath the explosion, it somehow avoided complete destruction and the remains of the building still stand today. The residents of Hiroshima decided to keep this tragic reminder of war intact. The site was designated as a World Heritage Site in 1996. Visit the Atomic Bomb Dome, the Cenotaph for Atomic Bomb Victims and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum to gain a deeper understanding of the suffering caused by war and nuclear weapons and the true value of peace.
