The only groceries store we came across in Miyajima.  It is located within the residential part of the island, 1 street behind the main touristy shopping streets.


The famous giant wooden spatula

Our 2nd ice-cream (from the same stall) of the day.

This cone of ice-cream brought him lots of trouble with the deers....see a few pics later

Hungry deers eating carton boxes

Fighting deers

Hungry deers wanting to eat hubby's ice-cream. It all started out with just 1 deer following him, and then more and more deer joined the line...eventually there was a total of 7 deers following him around just over 1 ice-cream.  The Japanese ladies were standing with me in front of our hotel being amused over the entire incident. haha.

3 deers...

It is 3 months down the road now, and both of us still have this mark on our arms...haha.
