Castle on a Cloud

A travel blog entry by nicole.duncan


Expectation is everything. We had been told that Hiroshima was not a pretty city given that it was all new, a concrete jungle. And we all pictured something like Detroit. The station was pretty. The trip across the rivers on the street cars was nice. Then we got off and walked the five or so blocks to our hotel through a not terribly picturesque …

Thursday was a day for the other side of Hiroshima and it turned out to be a lovely clear and warm day. We started out getting the train a few stops east and then walking to the Mazda reception area to join a free tour of the Mazda factory. The whole thing stretches several kilometres along a river and even includes their own private bridge. All …

A rainy day for reflection in Hiroshima

A travel blog entry by robs.au


Leaving Takayama on Tuesday morning kicked off the biggest travel day of the trip, with the first train leaving around 9:30am being a return trip down the scenic mountain line for the 2.5 hour trip to Nagoya, then a quick change onto a Shinkansen for another hour to Shin-Osaka where there was enough time to buy bento boxes for lunch before getting …

Stairs, stairs and more stairs

... took that one. I got off the ferry and walked to the Itsukushima shrine. There were a lot of deer walking around freely and they are so accustomed to humans that you can actually touch them and they will come up to you to see if you have anything to eat. Though you are warned that they will eat anything that is made of paper, including tickets, brochures and money. :-P After taking about 200 pictures of the Torii gate and shrine i really felt i was ...

When you walk on the island, you are likely to be greeted at ...

    Our room was 6 feet by 10 feet and if the mats had been rolled out they would have touched wall to wall. The sun was superheating the room through the frosted barred window to over 40C despite having the air conditioner "running". The western room the children were given on the other side of the building was not as hot but still far too warm for them to be comfortable in. Again the beds were wall to wall. We saw one of the newly remodelled rooms that one of our party was given which was spacious and more what was expected but as it was the only one available, we checked out and left. The part of town was also not so convenient with no restaurants and a tram ride required to the Pace Memorial Park and main parts of the town.
