Hiroshima

After we got off the Shinkansen and stowed our luggage in the station lockers we went to the Shukkeien gardens. Eventually we made our way to our apartment and after sampling the local Okonomiyaki settled in for a cold sleep. The next day we toured the Mazda HQ and ate ramen at a shop on the side of the railroad. The ramen shop was owned by an adorable old couple and the food was delicious. After the Mazda tour we went to Miyajima island and saw the giant Tori Gate. On Miyajima tame deer wandered around everywhere and pestered everyone for food. While we were on the island we petted the owls and played with the kitties in the cat and owl cafe. At night we popped accross the street from our apartment to Cantina 23 and ate burgers and drank the excellent 500¥ cocktails. The next day we set off ont he bullet train for Shikoku.
