这期视频 猜猜我在哪里? 给你们三秒钟
For this video can you guys guess where I’m at? I’ll give you three seconds.
3 2 1
Three. Two. One.
This time we have come to Hiroshima near the bottom of the main island Honshu.
A must visit when coming to Hiroshima is the island Itsukushima,
more popularly known as Miyajima.
As one of Japan’s top three scenic sites,
so let’s go explore this island and see what it has to offer.
I started off my trip at Hiroshima station
and take a twenty-five minute train arrive to Miyajimaguchi Station.
Come there is less than a five-minute walk to ferry terminal
where you are boarded to go to the island.
There are two competing vary companies operating from this port.
JRM Mastudai where ferry rides take 10 minutes and both cost 180 in one way.
如果你愿意 也有其它特别的方式可以到达小岛 比如 坐索道
There are also other special passes if you want to ride the ropeway on the island.
The ferries also come very frequently every 10 to 15 minutes.
Once again on the island you may feel like you have been taken back in time
and that’s because strict measures are taken to ensure
that the island retains accessible Japanese Edo era block.
［bustling and hustling］
I just arrived on the island
and I found myself a friend
It’s quite sad. The horns are cut off.
祝你快乐 现在 我要去逛逛这个岛咯
Have a nice day! I’m going to go explore the island now.
The city of Hatsukaichi
The deers wander throughout the island freely.
And even though they do look very cute. Just be careful
they don’t take your belongings especially if you have food.
Now let’s go see the most popular sight on this island.
逛这座岛 最好徒步逛 而且只能徒步逛
And the best and only way to the explore island is on foot.
所以 现在 我要朝神社去了 看看那有多少人
So now I’m going to head up to shrine give a look how many people there.
Look like ants.
Miyajima has a long history as a holy site of Sengoku.
The most powerful man in Japan during the end of the Heian period
selected the island as the sight of his clan’s family shrine and both Itsukishima Shrine.
The Shrine and its Torii gate are unique for being built over water.
During high tide it even looks like it’s floating in the sea.
I came during the low tide so I wasn’t able to see the water covering the shrine.
However, if you want to see that make sure to check out the tide schedules before coming,
所以 当然 当落潮时
So when it’s low tide you can actually walk all the way out there
and see this Shrine, of course.
Next is lunch time.
A lot of shops and food stores on the island.
I recommend trying out the specialties of Miyajima like the oysters.
Oyster farming goes back around 450 years in Hiroshima
about three hundred and thirty years in Miyajima.
So they are known to be very tasty on this island.
But what the island is most well known for is their maple leaf shaped castella.
There are many different types of falling leaves choose from.
However, the most original one is red bean.
There are many shops that sell this on the island
and you can see how it’s made as well.
What I find really intriguing about Japan
is that even though you are in the same country,
each area you go to has their own original uniqueness and specialities,
so I was very curious about how this maple Manju idea came about
and decided to ask one of the local food store behind it.
In the olden days, there was a tea shop in Miyajima.
A girl served tea for a customer and was complimented
that she had cute hands like a maple leaf
That’s how it came about
Cute girls have plump hands right
Not like us old ladies who have wrinkly hands.
Ahh, I see that’s the story behind the maple leaf castella.
Just a short walk from the shopping street,
there is a bridge at the bottom of the mountain which we will go to.
You can also go to the top of Mt. Misen via the Ropeway.
Or there are many hiking tracks you can hike up.
好可爱呀 步行十分钟 小跑只需七分钟
It’s so cute. 10 minutes walk. 7 if you run a little.
The island has things to see every corner you go,
so it’s nice to just have a wander around
and soak up the atmosphere.
Momiji Bridge3:00 p.m.
There is also an aquarium and museum you can visit on the island.
But now we are going to head over to the most famous tample on the island Daisho-in.
Daisho-in Temple3:30 p.m.
As one of the most important tamples of Buddhism,
and at the base of the temple,
I saw the longest trail of Buddha statues I have ever seen in my whole life.
千畳阁 阁如其名 宏大宽敞
Senjokaku describes the spaciousness of the building,
as it is in fact approximately the size of 1000 tatami mats.
就在这座庙的旁边 恰好有一座五层楼高的宝塔 这座宝塔比寺庙更吸引游客的注意力
Right next to it, there is also a five-story pagoda that attracts more attention from the tourists.
Before you leave, there are also many souvenirs you can buy,
but just remember most of the shops on the island close in the evening.
I recommend spending at least a day here so you can explore the island slowly.
And if you want to experience a different sight to the island after the tourists have gone
and the lanterns are lit up,
then I suggest staying the night in one of the traditional Japanese inns on the island.
This is my filming setup,
so there were no spare lockers in the station.
I have to carry this suitcase all around on the beach, on the sandy beach.
而且我还背着包 手里拿着三脚架 但是
And then I’ve got my tripod and I’ve got my bag, but
该死 算了 怎么就没有存储柜呢?
Damn, come on. Why no lockers？
When we sick of people right,
we sick of people,
That’s all you’ll escape the beach. Do you want to say bye to everyone?
希望你们喜欢这个视频 那我们再见啦 再见咯
Hope you guys enjoy the video. So let’s say bye. Bye.
对 你在说再见对不对? 希望是的
Yeah you’re saying bye right? Hopefully yes.
