That’s it for the article about Iwakuni Castle. As I mentioned in the previous article, there is a combination ticket for Kintaikyo Bridge, Ropeway and Iwakuni Castle, so if you have a chance to visit Iwakuni, I would recommend you visit Kintaikyo Bridge and Iwakuni Castle first.

Now, I left Iwakuni and moved to Miyajima. From the next article, I will write about Miyajima. In particular, my main objective of this trip was to visit Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajma, so I will write about Itsukushima Shrine in three articles – (1) daytime with high tide, (2) daytime with low tide and (3) evening and night 🙂

    1. j-maさんへ。はじめまして、コメントありがとうございます!なんと、岩国城の展望台からは新幹線の新岩国駅も見えたのですね。錦帯橋・岩国城までは新幹線ではなく、飛行機で錦帯橋空港からバスで行ったため、位置関係をあまり把握できておらず、「ああ〜、錦帯橋が見えるなあ」で終わっていました(苦笑)。
