I have been in Japan for two months, and I was very excited to do some traveling over Obon.
My first stop was Hiroshima, which included a day trip to Miyajima Island. I really enjoyed my day on the island. It was absolutely beautiful, and I got to see the torii gate at low and high tide.
On my way back from Hiroshima, I stopped in Yanai to the festival that included many, many spinning goldfish. I loved to watch the goldfish light up at night!
I did visit a few other cities, but I also did some exploring around Shunan. I saw the Hello Kitty exhibit at the Shunan Art Museum, which was very cute! I love Hello Kitty :)
I hope you had a fun Obon!
