    Getting Naked with Strangers

    ... We found a cute little shrine and pond. We almost accidentally walked right into a tea house! Of course there were still vending machines of drinks all over the place (even the neighborhood areas we walked through), so Fred grabbed one more drink to add to his collage of drinks. This one turned out to be absolutely amazing! It was flavored like melon soda (pretty popular here) and ice cream (they love floats!) - somehow it actually tasted like that too. It as about ...

    ... very nice hotel (we had to make up for all the robes). The Chinese Japanese fusion food was different and new which is always a plus for us and it was yummy to boot.

    No time for stopping here, we hurried on to our final city and the one C/J had been looking forward too the most...Hiroshima. Our first stop was to visit the WWII memorials and to see the A-Bomb dome from a first hand perspective. The whole area is a powerful reminder of the dangers ...

    ... reception area was gorgeous so we were sure that our rooms were going to be great. Unfortunately we couldn't check in until 2pm, so we quickly bought some umbrellas and headed off in search of lunch. As we are staying on Shijo Dori (the Main Street) our choices were endless. We ended up decided on a buffet style place, where you grab a tray, and walk along a line of freshly cooked food, choosing what you want. You then pay at the end ...
