Japan Day #2 Hiroshima and the bullet train to Kyoto!

Breakfast in the hotel, than a walk across the street to the Peace Park.

So we had an amazing, somber, eye-opening and memorable morning in Hiroshima, starting with a hotel breakfast and a walk to the Hiroshima Peace Park and Museum.

We learned much about the devastation of the Atomic Bomb…

Then we took the bullet train to Kyoto, where we arrived in the pouring rain… a little afternoon rest before our next adventure out this evening for dinner and a little discovery of the city.
