Hiroshima

It is less than two hours from Kyoto to Hiroshima on a Shinkansen (super express) train. Hiroshima was completely rebuilt after the A-bomb and has a look of a very modern city, but somehow to me it feels like a provincial town. The main means of transportation is a streetcar where you pay for the ride to a driver when you get off. I have visited the Peace Memorial Park and the Museum. I don’t have much to say about it. A very strong reminder of how crazy the world is. Tomorrow morning I go back to Tokyo.
