Second day of working out complete. Phew I thought that my will power to not become a sumo would only last one day. I am sure the Japanese cleaning ladies are wondering what this crazy Canadian is doing running up and down the stairs. We packed up and boarded our train for Hiroshima, some very snowy locales passing our window along the way. Closer to Hiroshima the snow disappeared and green started re-emerging. We arrived in ...
