Castle on a Cloud

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 …

Peace Park

A travel blog entry by livingmydreams


... We saw the skin and nails of a boy whose mother pulled them from his flesh as they were falling off so that his father could see them. We saw the uniforms of school children, bloody, battered and torn. We saw lunch boxes still intact with the lunch burned to ashes inside. We saw pictures of the deformities caused by the radiation, babies born with one eye, nails that were inches long on two fingers while the rest were normal, teeth that ...

Onomichi, Hiroshima & Miyajima

A travel blog entry by monkeybusiness


After our long cycle ride we ended up in Onomichi. Onomichi is only a small town but, unfortunately, due to achy knees from the cycle we weren't able to explore too much. However, we did manage to eat in a restaurant where the old couple which ran it happened to be the stars of the local tour guide. And en route to the train station we stopped at a cafe where we were given some free raffle tickets for a tombola game in the shopping arcade. We both won the grand total of 50 ...

Day 45 - Hiroshima, Heart and Soul

A travel blog entry by rick_and_mandy


... feed with the locals, and then wandered around looking at the sights and sounds at night. It was busy, but it was good, it was cool, but it was fine, it was foreign, but it was comfortable, god this place is easy to be in. What a difference time can make. Slept like a baby. Dreamt about a tree that could talk, and it laughed at me and told me to be quiet and listen. When I awoke I stayed silent for a wee while, and rejoiced in being in Japan, and the simply amazing recovery, that is ...

Hiroshima and Miyajima Island

A travel blog entry by brenton-alan


... tame you can pat them.

Walking the little street with many little eateries gave us an appetite. Our fist taste of Japanese food was good. We ate a Okonomiyaki. It is a combination of batter, noodles, cabbage, bean sprouts, egg, sauce. Very filling and tasty. Some food here is so cheap, and some is so expensive.
We bought 1 litre of 100% apple juice for $2. 12 pack of icecreams for $3. We saw meat for sale in a supermarket for $390 a kilo, and it was so ...

    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.
