Japan Day 2: A Shinkansen Bullet Train, Miyajima Island, And Hiking Mt. Misen

For our second day in Japan, we used our JR Pass to take a shinkansen bullet train to Hiroshima and then caught a ferry to Miyajima Island. Miyajima is famous for it’s “floating” Great Torii Gate, forests, and temples. The Great Torii gate marks the entrance of the Itsukushima Shrine. We explored all of this and more on our second day in Japan.
