Welcome, everybody! Piggletino has decided to be the tour-guide for everyone reading this post šŸ™‚ Live commentary from the pig himself!
Today we head towards Miyajima Island, approximately 10 minutes by Ferry away from Hiroshima. The term ‘Miyajima’ means ‘Shrine Island’, and we’re here to see the giant torii gate!

Remember when the silly scout was trying to figure out the story behind the torii gate? How very silly – there’s a giant one appearing to float on the water! And the torii gate is a traditional Japanese gate that marks the entrance of a Shinto Shrine.

Here, we arrive at Miyajima Island –

… (Piggletino is sitting on a map of the island) where wild deers stay! But please don’t feed them!

Now that we’ve arrived, let’s take a short break before we continue to walk on! Don’t wander too far off from Piggletino!
