It's the Otorii (big gate) of Itsukushima Shrine in Miyajima Island. It is one of the famous three sceneries of Japan. Also listed as UNESCO world heritage site, it is one of biggest tourist attraction in Hiroshima.
I was there in November of 2006 where I took this snapshot with my handphone. Yet the contrast of the gate and the sky is perfect. Took a 2 hours flight from Haneda airport, Tokyo. Of course you can get to Hiroshima by Shinkansen too. The island is also famous for oysters. You can have delicious fresh oysters there.
It's a shot of Hard Rock Cafe Tokyo situated in Roppongi. Don't miss the King Kong climbing at the side. It's the first Hard Rock Cafe in Tokyo since 1983. However there's another one in Ueno station. In total, there are 8 Hard Rock Cafes in Japan.
I celebrated my birthday once there and got the complementary set of birthday cake and wine. I know there area lot of Hard Rock Cafe fans out there, so check this one out when you're around the neighborhood.
