    Onsens and Miyajima island

    February 10 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Waking up early after a comfortable night on our futons, we had an early morning onsen before having a Japanese style breakfast at our ryokan. We had veggies, tofu, steamed sea bream in the most delicious sauce, some rice and accompaniments and fruit. We then headed to Miyajima Island by local train and ferry (both covered by our JR passes). We strolled around and had a freshly made momiji manju for Y100. It's a cake type consistency filled with red bean paste and they are famous in this area. We then stopped and had some hot drinks in a tiny little cafe. We strolled back to the ferry and had Hiroshima style okonomiyaki for lunch (Y800 each) on the mainland. We then caught the train back, had another onsen and later went to a local style place for dinner, as suggested by our hosts. Katsudon (pork cutlet and egg rice bowl) for B and tempura don (tempura veggies, prawn and rice bowl) for me. Once back it was time for another onsen before bed.Read more

    Luxusurlaub im 19€ Hostel

    March 30, 2018 in Japan ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Nach dem wir mir dem Shinkansen von Osaka nach Hiroshima geschossen sind und uns beim Umsteigen nur einmal verlaufen haben, sind wir nun in einem Hostel etwas abseits angekommen.

    Wir haben das hier Hauptsächlich wegen des Preises genommen, gefunden haben wir Luxusbadezimmer und einen Aufenthaltsraum mit gratis Getränken, Spielen und Mangas zum Lesen so wie einem Automaten der kaltes Bier auswirft! Und allein deswegen hat sich das Hostel schon gelohnt :DRead more

    Coming into Hiroshima the first thing I noticed was the vast amount of trees. They were spread upon hills for miles, all displaying their autumn colours.

    As the plane approached landing I looked outside the window to see the trees grow closer and closer in sight. That's when I realised this airport was unique to all others I had visited. It was not by the seaside and we were not landing at sea level. We were landing a top a hill.

    The bus trip is revealing just how different Hiroshima is to Tokyo. The array of trees, quiet shrines that look to keep to themselves mostly are spotted throughout the autumn hills. Buildings when spotted have a more traditional feel and are much more rooted to the ground than the crowning sky rises that compete so boldy in Tokyo.

    Some facts with Fern:

    🌸 Hiroshima is the name of the prefecture (one of forty seven). Its population of about 2.8 million. Hiroshima City is the capital with about 1.2 million.
    🌸 It has two world heritage sites - Atomic Bomb Dome and Itsukushima shrine.
    🌸 Famous for oysters and sea eels.
    🌸 Head quarters of daiso is here.
