One of the highlights of our visit to Hiroshima was going to the island of Itsukushima (also known as Miyajima) to see the amazing Itsukushima Shrine, commonly known as the floating torii gate.  This is a Unesco World Heritage Site and is definitively worth a visit while in Japan.

Mount Fuji!  What an amazing sight!

Our visit to Mount Fuji was really special because we stayed at the Highland Resort & Spa which is located at the foot of the mountain.  The fact that we were so close allowed us to wake up with the spectacular view and see it in front of us when we were having breakfast.  We also had a massage and then relaxed looking at Mt.Fuji and even went on a rollercoaster ride while looking at the magnificent view because the hotel is also home to the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park.   www.highlandresort.co.jp
