One can’t really go to Japan without paying a visit to Hiroshima. 65 years after the facts, the city still gives off chills and teaches us invaluable lessons. We arranged to have a few hours to visit the memorial site and museum between Miyajima and our next destination, Kyoto (with booked accommodation this time!).
We arrived in Kyoto at night, and only went out for dinner. We went to bed early, wanting to be full of energy for the full day of sightseeing ahead.
