Another Day of Travel

... and eggs. Okonomiyaki restaurants in Hiroshima use a utensil called a "Hera" to cut the okonomiyaki. A Hera looks like a small flipper. Overall I think they would be very tasty if mine hadn't tasted like fish. Although I had ordered mine with bacon, it still had a strong fish flavour as the same grill, cook's hands, and flippers were used to handle fish and also my food. They must be good though because when we left the restaurant, there was a line waiting to get ...

... are layered rather than mixed. The layers are typically batter, cabbage, pork, and optional items such as squid, octopus, and cheese. Noodles (yakisoba, udon) are also used as a topping with fried egg and a generous amount of okonomiyaki sauce.
The amount of cabbage used is usually three to four times the amount used in the more common Osaka style. It starts out piled very high and is pushed down as the cabbage cooks. The order of the layers ...

Day 46 - Magical Miyajima

... it's just amazing. Indeed, the gods willing, we will be going back one day soon, and when we do I am going to do exactly that whilst my lady gets pampered in the town or summit like that. It's difficult to explain how incredibly beautiful and serene Daisho-in Temple is, and you have to go if you are even remotely into that sort of thing. The best energies on the planet clearly align at that temple, you can almost see it in the air. There is a very good reason Miyajima is ...

A History Lesson

... the recounts of victims, melted roof tiles and burned clothes which provide the greatest insight and impact of the incident. Possibly the saddest thing of all if the number of school children who were working on demolition projects in the city at the time that were injured and subsequently died.

The 64,000 question...yes it's sad but what lessons has the world taken to ensure that we don't end up in this situation ...

... and looping around to get to the station.

We almost got lost once but the massive Kyoto tower steered us back on course.

When we arrived at the station the sky was so clear blue that we snapped the tower which was reflected on the front of the station.

The Kyoto station was absolutely huge and was linked to a hotel and a mass of restaurants. Very swish!

After a super quick Shinkansen journey we ...

    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.
