I spent Thanksgiving weekend (which happens to be a holiday in Japan too!) in Hiroshima 「広島」! It is an absolutely beautiful city, one of my favorite cities I’ve been to. I did many uniquely Japanese things like ride the shinkansen (bullet train) at 285 km/hr, stay in a capsule hotel, visit Peace Park where the nuclear bomb was dropped, visit the nuclear bomb museum, meet a beatiful Japanese girl who I drank and danced with until the wee hours of the morning, and stayed at a love hotel (something unique to Japan!)
Below is a panorama of a shopping district near Peace Park. The left covered street comes out at Peace Park 「平和公園」.
