Saturday, I will take the Shinkasen to Hiroshima then a ferry to Miyajima. You’ve seen the famous gate picture. With just 16 days left in Japan, I was reflecting on what I might miss the most and the answer came to me today.
I love Denver but I grew up with the Jersey Shore and then spent 5 years in Annapolis kayaking and sailing around town. Most people don’t think of Japan as a big island because of its densely populated cities, but there is water everywhere. In Yokohama, I have taken the water taxi many times. The cool(ish) breeze in the summer time was delightful.
This weekend, my hotel is on the beach overlooking the Setouchi Sea.
I decided my final weekend, next weekend, would be spent in Hong Kong. Lonely Planet’s #1 thing to do is take a ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong. Sold! It is 70F there right now so it will be nice taking a boat ride.
Have you been? Do you have suggested places to visit for a very short trip to Hong Kong?
