New video alert!
I am still working through all the pictures and videos I made in Japan, and I finally had a few hours free to edit the footage of our 2 days spent in Hiroshima! A city which surprised us with its modernity and busy nightlife.
We spent a day exploring the city centre and the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. The museum is beautifully done and the whole area shows you the impact of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, in August 1945. An emotional visit yes, but an important one. It is hard to comprehend the level of destruction the local community experienced at the time when you walk in the streets of the lively city Hiroshima has now become.
On the second day, we headed to Miyajima island to visit the famous Shrines and see the world-famous floating Torii. It seems that 99% of all postcards of Japan must have been photographed there. It was one of the most beautiful places we visited during our entire trip! We also made a few furry friends on the way as you will see in the video below!
I hope you enjoy those 6 minutes in Hiroshima!
