Photographer's Note

From Hiroshima I travelled by ferry to Miyajima Island, where I found a fantastic temple surround by statues, carvings, figurines and various artworks. Its was amazing and was quite unique in that they didn't mind me taking some photos.

I found this stair case, with probably 100 small statues depecting various gods, monks, and other religeous figures all beautifully sculpted. And Am-pan Man. a popular childrens cartoon character. It really was out of place, and I thought quite Japanese, as you often find a fusion of ancient and modern in Japanese daily life.
