Nippon::Part Two::Miyajima

apparently my goal of going on an eight mile bike ride today was too ambitious since i never changed out of my sweats or showered. woops.
anyways, while we were in japan, we took a day trip to miyajima, the shinto shrine. you wouldn't think going to a shrine would be exciting, but it was so much fun! after the ferry reached the island, we had to walk a ways to reach the red torii (gate). it turned out that the pathway was lined with little shops and food stands. i bought the cutest ceramic owls that are now perched on my window sill :) it makes me a little sad that they're going to sit in storage for a long time but oh well. we also saw the world's largest rice scooper, crazy number of deer that live on the island, and ate sweet potato ice cream.
