Hiroshima

A glorious amount of leg room and wide seats on the bullet train from Kyoto to Hiroshima…Japan and its trains eh.

This post is a lot longer than I expected. 3 nights in Hiroshima saw us spend time at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and Museum, Okunoshima (Rabbit) Island and Miyajima Island. A very entertaining and also saddening end to our 2 weeks in Japan. We have loved our time in Japan and hope to return again…another day!
