We walked around Hiroshima in the evening and finished up with a dinner of the Hiroshima variant of okonomiyaki.
They say the Hiroshima Peace Museum is quite confronting - we found it terribly crowded and quite hard to see some of the exhibits.
The Hiroshima Peace Park is dedicated to the legacy of Hiroshima as the first city in the world to suffer a nuclear attack.
The Genbaku Dome (aka Hiroshima Peace Memorial, or the Atomic Bomb Dome) is a former exhibition hall that somehow still stands as a ruin.
Hiroshima Castle is yet another reconstructed castle because the original was destroyed along with most of Hiroshima by the Atomic Bomb.
Hiroshima is infamous as the first city targeted by an atomic bomb. Largely rebuilt post war, the city is once again a significant city.
We boarded the Shinkansen from Okayama to Hiroshima at 8:25am and to my surprise it's the N700 - the fastest train in the fleet.
