Long sleep in and then went on to catch the 10am Shinkansen to Hiroshima.

It only takes 90 minutes from Osaka - so we rolled in around 1pm.

Leaving our luggage at the APA - we ventured out to look at the Shukkei-en gardens which were only 15 minutes walk from the hotel. Considering the place was annihilated only 60 years ago...it …

Day 14 - The sounds of silence

... you pull up to the Peace Park stop and it's like the city just falls away and you're greeted with the sight of the remains of one of the very few buildings left standing after the bomb was dropped.
