While in Hiroshima, I took a day trip out to Miyajima, another of Japan’s famous ‘top three most beautiful places,’ and my second for the trip.

It is on an island that requires a 20 minute ferry ride to get to, with brilliantly clear water. You are greeted by this shrine that they claim floats in the water without support…

The temples and shrines are endless

Perhaps they could use this mask in the next Saw movie?

As someone with big feet, I continually struggled with the size of the slippers you are required to wear at many places – it was much more comfortable without them but that would have been rude

But when the tide goes out, you can quite clearly see the foundations of the shrine. I’m not quite sure why they make their claims?
