    ... we took taxis to the hotel. It was so awkward but I slept for about 2 minutes. The doors shut automatically and it was so cool! When we got to the hotel, we couldn't check in yet so we went and took a mini tour of the town. We walked around and got to know the area. Then, we went to the museum of the bombing. It was so sad.

    ... very dramatic experience.

    The first atomic bomb to be used in war was dropped here by the U.S. Air Force from the Enola Gay, a B-29 bomber. Within 43 seconds from being dropped, the bomb detonated over the city.

    ... way to the station i came across another 5 storey pagoda similar to the one i saw in Kyoto though on a much smaller scale. Next to it was a small Shinto temple which had a load of painting in the rafters - most looked very old but a few looked suspiciously new :P I suppose when you're that close to the sea your paintings will eventually get corroded by the salty air.
