The new day we went to Miyajima and it was a beautiful place. We explored the "floating" Shinto Shrine and did some drawing. We stayed at a Roykan, a traditional Japanese hotel, with dinner served on a low table and futons to sleep on. It was wonderful. After dinner our daughter and I went down to the communal baths, one for women and one for men. It felt heavenly.
This has got to be one of my favorited places in Japan.
The next day we headed to Kyoto.
