A Heavy Day

Hello all

Today was a nice, day so to speak, This morning i left Himeji early and headed towards Hiroshima, but first i needed to find my hostel which was 30 mins past Hiroshima, i never felt like walking all day with my pack again. the train there was just a local one, while the train from Himeji to Hiroshima was the Shinkansen or Bullet Train which was really cool even though i have been on it before it was still cool.

So i get to my hostel in Miyajima well just on the main land from the island to which i will visit tomorrow. I drop my pack off and all is thankfully. I decide to head Back into Hiroshima to walk around the area including the Peace Park and the A-Bomb Dome which is the closest building to where the Nuke went off. it was detonated around 600m in the air above this pace and it is just a shell left everything around it was vaporised anyway the whole feeling to the place is very Heavy, the Air Thick. 

After going around these places i headed towards Hiroshima Castle which i a nice little Castle though new in the sense of it all due to the bombing the original was Burned down, near by the castle was a Garden which was very nice a very peaceful place where the weight can come off for a while. after a long time spent in the gardens i decided, time to head back to my hostel.

And now the Pictures

Thought i looked like a bus was chasing an old man
