Family day trip: Kazumi met us at the train station in the morning. We tok a local train (20 min) + boat (7 min) to the sacred island (Memorial). Beautiful place with shrines, temple, pagoda - lots of history from our excellent guide. Wild deer (very friendy animals) followed us in the streets, the kids love it. A beautiful and peaceful place. Sakura flowers in the spring and maple trees turning colors in the fall. After a great lunch on the island (large vegetable cabbage/egg pancakes with meat/shrimp and saucetopping, very tasty) we went back to Hiroshima city. We visited the place the bomb was dropped (550 meters above us), then different memorial parks with both art and sculptures. Kazumi told many stories, very knowlegdeable and sweet. The end stop was the Hiroshima Museum, take time to se the video testemonials upstairs (big screen) and all the pictures on the ground floor. We tok the train back to Osaka in the evening. We can highly recommend this day trip! Best regards Astrid and Magnus from Oslo, Norway.
Thank you for your excellent review. I am glad that you enjoyed Hiroshima with me. Great weather helped our day as well. I was so impressed the life style of your country. You should be proud of your kids. They are so lovely. I was happy to share the time with you. Please say hi to all your family. Thank you and I really hope to visit you sometime soon. Kazumi
