Konnichiwa from Hiroshima Hana Hostel It's Kana here.
Summer is already over without noticing and we are having  Autumn with  beautiful colored leaves.
We enjoyed beautiful colored leaves in Autumn and Cherry blossom on Spring, so if you have any opportunity to visit Japan, You must see them!

Speaking of colored leaves, I know one of the best place in Hiroshima which is MIYAJIMA.
Miyajima is one of world heritage. MUST GO PLACE.

There is one of festival in Miyajima in Oct so you can both enjoy world heritage with beautiful colored leaves and Festival at same time!!!

On Oct 15th, there will be Kikka-sai Festival (Chrysanthemum Festival)

The court dance and music introduced into Miyajima from Kyoto by Kiyomori Taira is dancing by the gagaku. Around 20 pieces including "Ryo-oh", "Nasori" "Manzai raku" and "Engi raku" are still handed down to Itsukushima Shrine from the latter period in the twelfth century.

You can enjoy one of old traditional dance! It will be very good experience for you!

If you have JR pass, No cost for you to get to Miyajima from Hiroshima station which is only 5 minutes walk away from Hana Hostel!
