No curve was too sharp for them and their bicycle. No puddle was deep enough to stop them. -- Friends by Helme Hein

We took the old Hiroshima street car to catch the ferry to Miyajama, a beautiful island off the coast.
Look at the hordes of Japanese students leaving the boat. Everywhere we went was bombarded by school groups.

the Five-Storied Pagoda on Miyajima

gorgeous colors together

The famous floating Torii considered one of Japan's top 3 views. James says my hair is the perfect length for a Darth Vader helmet.

To enter a temple correctly, you are always supposed to go through the torii. These tourists paid to go through it the right way. When this temple was built it was only for a royalty, so by building the torii in the water they thought they could keep the commoners out.

The floating temple bogged down by tourists. A Japanese version of Venice?
