April 8, 2015 - Itsukushima Shrine at low tide and Mt.Misen climbing - Spring 2015
After leaving Iwakuni Station with local train, my next target was
Miyajima Island famous for its floating torii gate.
Ferry pier next to Miyajimaguchi Station provides
one of better ways to acces island and is covered by JR Pass.
After short ride with ferry, I could start touring island attactions.
First to visit was Itsukushima Shrine and adjacent torii gate.
As sea went on with withdrawal at torii gate,
I decided to ride rope-way on Mt.Misen.
After ridding circulating and funicular types of rope-way visitors could take photos from observatory near upper station, or climb Mt.Misen summit on hiking trail.
It takes about 30 minutes to reach summit.
Roughly after 2 hours after visiting Mt.Misen, sea had compleded withdrawal and visitors could stand next to torii gate.
