Miyajima deer. The island of Miyajima (outside Hiroshima), which houses the Itsukushima shrine, is a popular tourist destination in Japan. Once there you will notice that the deers living on the island are extremely tame. In the background you can see the famous Torii gate that stands out in the water.

Japanese tram, Swedish car. A tram bound for Miyajima Guchi next to a Volvo in the city of Hiroshima, Japan. OK, this might not be the most interesting photo I have posted but I thought maybe you want to know that they have trams in Hiroshima. I visited the city in January which probably not is the peak season for tourists. Hiroshima is, besides a certain nuclear bomb event, also known for housing a lot of Yakuza gang members. It felt like a quite sleepy town and I guess I didn’t find it extremely exciting. It was interesting to visit though. And the special Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki was very delicious.
