Description

This was a hand-held panorama taken on the ferry ride to the island of Miyajima, Japan. This island is famous for the O-Torii or Grand Gate which has its base submerged at high tide (and is the subject of another panorama of mine which looks back across the bay from the Itsukushima Shrine through the vermillion red gate, tag = "O-Torii"). Japan's mountains here are jagged and jumbled. There are many scenic hiking trails on Miyajima, but, unfortunately, we didn't have time to do a hike or two. There are also wild deer which stroll everywhere unfettered and begging for food from passers-by. The island is about a 40 minute train ride from Hiroshima to Miyajimaguchi ferry terminal--- then a 40 minute boat ride to cross the water.
