... on top of Mt Shosha. It's located about 8 km from the castle so I decided to walk, after stocking some extra water to cope with the temperature of 30 degrees. The climb was steep but short and fortunately I didn't encounter any of the wild boars for which several signs at the start of the climb had warned me.

Movie buffs out there may know that the temple was used as the location for the Hollywood movie, “The Last Samurai”. It is said that the crew visited Mt. Shosha by chance and were so impressed with the site that it featured as the backdrop for the movie.

... Lots of climbing and being Japan you have to take your shoes off and wear very fashionable slippers! Took about three hours to get around it and the gardens attached. We had our suitcases with us so a scramble for the lockers at the train station trying to beat Americans with huge amounts of luggage! Got back on the train about five and arrived in Hiroshima at six. Will update soon from there Lisa and ...
