You take a ferry across to the island. They have lots of Oyster farms and this is one of the boats pulling a load full of oysters. Yum! says Tom and Tom alone.
Miyajima is known for it's Tori gate in the water as well as it's many deer.
Hazel, posing, constantly.
Some Japanese wanted a picture with the blonde Americans at the Tori gate.
They also had a red pavillion temple....
...and the world's largest rice spatula!
where we were able to hike to......
the Eternal Flame of love and...
a really nice viewing spot.
That night we drove to Sasebo where you can eat Sasebo burgers.
and ride on a boat to see the 99 islands which means many islands in Japan, there are actually 230 in this area. We rode on the Pearl Queen, which I had to include because of Sam's awesome face in this picture:
Submarine or Mexican hat island.
