Day 2-5: Hiroshima/Miyajima Part 1

And...we're officially starting the touring! Because of the huge number of pictures, I'm splitting this post into two parts.

I am very excited about the start of this blog because I get to talk about all the adventures we went through and all the yummy food we ate!
