As part of Kizuna program for participant in Hiroshima, we had a program that can be called as study tour. This time we headed to Itsukushima (厳島) or popular known as Miyajima. As for your information, Miyajima is famous for the Itsukushima Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For two weeks, we spent lot of time in Tokyo and areas nearby, there were so much fun but our real aims for this program is actually started by visiting one of the disaster area in Fukushima called Tenei Village. This village is actually affected by the earthquake and the explosion of nuclear power plant.
From Tokyo we took shinkansen/bullet train to Fukushima...
The place called Tenei-Mura @ Tenei Village is very beautiful place I have seen in Japan but to reach there, I felt like riding a roller coaster. This is due to the place is located almost on top of the hills, so the road is basically spinning around. It was bad for me as i feel like to vomit and I cant't really enjoy the scenes from the bus but when we reach there.. It is payable as the place was awesome.. No kidding... It is totally awesome.
For this first part, I will just post some photos of the area, for the next part I will share what we did In Tenei Village.. so keep updating with me..

This is actually my second time hiking Broga Hill. The first time I did was in early 2012 with my high school friends but this time I was with my ex-classmate in my university, total of us are 4+my friend's sister. We moved from University Putra Malaysia (UPM Serdang) by car around 5.15 in the morning.
At the time we reached at Broga, it is already around 5.45 am (it is quiet late), there were already many others people due to weekend compared to weekdays.
I did bring my DSLR but as usual, I am too lazy to take photo. By the way, I did take some...

|If i'm not mistaken, there were 3 peaks in Broga. This is the first peak.|
|love it. view from second peak|

At first we decided to go to Gunung Tok Wan but when we did walked around 15-20 minutes, we did heard some sounds make by an animal, probably wild boar so we decided to turned back to Broga as we were the only group that make our way to Gunung Tok Wan and we didn't really know how long it will takes for us to reach there and there is no man in our group, so that's why we took that decision.
I think we did a right decision by turning back to Broga because when I went back, I checked on internet it said that It will take approximately 1 hour 45 minutes to reach Gunung Tok Wan.
