Miyajima Island, Itsukushima Shrine, Torri Gate, Pagoda, Mount Misen


Miyajima island, number one tourist place near Hiroshima, and over the top ranking place to visit in Japan, famous for Torri gate, shrine, deers and street food. There are so many things you can do in Miyajima.
You can reach Miyajima island by ferry, in front of the ferry station you can find the Cat & owl cafe, the attraction of Miyajima starts with this cafe, they have three types of animals section, cats, dogs, and owl. The cafe is damn cute, you can enjoy each cafe for half an hour while you can play with cute animals.

Itsukushima Shrine and Torri Gate

The O-Tori gate is the best sign of Miyajima Island. It looks amazing while floating in the water with 16 meters (around) in height. Basically, you can see the Tori gate anywhere in Japan, but this Torri gate at Miyajima reflects the structure of Itsukushima Shrine. It has made with wood and the body is coated with vermilion lacquer.
Itsukushima Shrine is one of the beautiful and the largest shrines of Japan. Because it floats in the water, it has around 300 meters wide tunnels over the water. The vermilion and white combination shrine shows the real culture and tradition of Japan and faith in God.

Pagoda

The five-story Pagoda is a stunning masterpiece, it is next to the Senjokaku temple. Built in 1407, it reflects the real Japanese tradition. It is a beautiful piece of Buddhist architecture. People can climb to the top of the Pagoda and explore the creativity of architecture. It looks the same from any angle and you can see it from a long distance because of its height and the color. 
This is a beautiful option to get perfects shots and photos.

Mount Misen

Mount Misen is the highest peak (about 500 meters) of Miyajima Island, it's a great place for those who love hiking. Mount Misen is one of the famous mountains for hiking in Japan. You can go to the mountain by ropeway at Momijidani Park. From the exit of the ropeway, you will get to the Shishiwa Observatory, where you can see a beautiful view of Seto inland and its Islands. Etajima, Ninoshima, Enoshima, Nasamijima Islands. After viewing the Observatory, you can go to the top of the Misen Mountain by hiking.




I will share more about Deer, Street food and how to reach Miyajima in my next post.

The Golden Week

It's Monday and I am getting back to my work again after 9 days of holiday. At the end of the April, Japan has almost a week holiday called "Golden Week" but for me, it wasn't a golden week, it was a diamond week as I enjoyed this holiday. At the beginning of the holidays, I had a small trip at Tottori and then for next five days, I just stayed at my Japanese apartment and did nothing, except eating, sleeping and watching lots of movies on NETFLIX with some cups of Chai and lots of Indian snacks, at the end of the holiday, I watched my first movie in Japanese theatre (Avengers- Infinity War) with a bucket of popcorn and cold drinks, had a sweet dinner on weekend night with a glass of red wine.
My holiday ends with lots of memories and fun, now I am back to work with a fully fresh mind and a new excitement. I am already waiting for my next long holiday in July, till then no more blogging and Instagram except weekend.

Rose Gold Obsession

I have always been a big fan of Black color. If you will see my old pictures on Facebook, you will find all my pictures in Black clothes. I always loved black for my clothing.
Well, things Changed, I changed and I became obsessed with Rose Gold. Not only for clothing but for anything I just love the color and its different shades (including peach and light pink). From the curtain to door mate, all I have in the peach shade, from my coffee mug to water bottle all I have in a monochrome of peach and rose gold. From my mobile phone (iPhone 7 Plus) to my wallet, all I have in rose gold. All I want to say that I am just crazy about the monochrome shades of Rose gold and I just love these shades. I am as crazy for these shades as my close one started buying me (or gifting me) stuff in these shades only, they know very well that if they will buy me these shades, I would love it the most. Recently I bought this beautiful rose gold dress and these flats from H&M on a big sale (70% off sum…

Around 16 Km long desert looks so amazing with a beautiful combination of mountain, sand, and sea. Today I am sharing my experience of Tottori and things to do in Tottori.
