We had a quick forest bathing.

Breakfast in our airbnb. Made pancakes using the special Kyushu pancake mix!
How to go to Miyajima from JR Hiroshima station:
Take the JR Sanyo Line to Miyajimaguchi station. From that station, walk to the JR Ferry port and buy tickets.
I had been waiting for this day.
For today’s post, I just want to share these photos taken during our first day in Hiroshima.
I was super excited to travel around this prefecture because of three things: Hiroshima Castle, Itsukushima Shrine, and Okunoshima (Bunny Island)!

Waiting for our morning bus
Bus stop cuteness
We had 2 stops before finally reaching Hiroshima City! When in Japan, try CREMIA icecream! It’s the milkiest!
Hiroshima is known for its unique take on okonomiyaki. Got our tummies fed at a restaurant inside JR Hiroshima station itself.
Last weekend, I was invited by Tokyo Sweets Project to do cafe-hopping together with Mochi Sucre.
I rarely go to Harajuku now as I often prefer quiter places in Tokyo / Saitama but it also felt refreshing to go back to the place I used to frequent to. Harajuku has changed a lot, haha.

After I post this, I have to run and catch my train, haha!
Walking around the Tokyo neighborhood during lunch break.
Weekend shipments for Rainbowholic Shop. Had to bring these with me on a train trip, haha!
Not sure what these flowers are called but they really bloomed so beautifully after sakura!
