Where I stayed
After that, normal stuff, although I must admit I have gotten rather lazy with any sort of planning these days. I sat on my bag in the station, looked in my guide book, picked the nearest hostel and headed there
That afternoon just had a stroll around the local area, markets and the like, then met a traveler in my hostel on the roof and we went for dinner - Japanese BBQ. Where we ate heart, liver, gizzards, duck, chicken, quails eggs, bacon, and a lot of other things.. Yum.
The next day we went sightseeing, we saw the A-bomb dome, which was an exhibition hall where the atomic bomb was dropped above, one of the only remaining standing buildings it was kept as a reminder of what happened. We then went around the peace memorial park, to the remembrance hall and the museum. Heads sufficiently filled with haunting photos, and horrific facts, we decided to lighten the mood with green tea ice cream, in a 5* green tea shop (yes, they exist)
We then spent the afternoon wandering back through various alleyways looking at shops, chilling out in our hostel, before I had to jump on the night bus to my next location!
