Looking back at the photos of our trip to Japan in 2006 makes me feel that I have to retrace the same route one day.
But with the DSLR this time.
Below are photos of some of the places which we really enjoyed visiting during that trip, taken with our trusty Panasonic Lumix.
^ The Itsukushi Shrine torii gate in Miyajima, an island off Hiroshima, which is built over water and appears to float during high tide.
^ Bamboo groves behind the Tenryuji Temple in Arashiyama, Kyoto.
^ Osaka Castle
^ Hiroshima Atomic Bomb Dome which is the remains of the Prefectural Industrial Promotion Building after being the target of the atomic bomb attack on August 6, 1945.
We also spent some time in the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum where we watched video clips of the devastating Atomic bombing and the aftermath. The sights shown in the clips were very disturbing and I felt quite ill after that.
