    The Itsukushima Shrine Complex on Miyajima suffered an extensive damage on September 7, 2004 as a result of a major typhoon. One National Treasure building has been blown away.

    Visitors to Miyajima should expect closures and repair/construction work for the next several months.

    Stay out of the Bike Crossing!

    Bike crossing

    Something that really surprised me was that in Hiroshima they have pedestrian and bicycle crossings. Nice! So pay attention so you don't get run over and stay out of the bike crosswalk!

    It's a great thing; I wish the US would have these in the cities also!

    It's Not Garbage!

    Around some of the monuments in Hiroshima's Peace Park, especially in August, you are likely to see food items, milk cartons, etc. These items is not litter! Instead they are offerings, often made by people who knew someone who was killed or who's life was changed by the atomic bomb. It's respectful, like putting flowers on a gravestone, so DO NOT pick it up and throw it away! Don't even touch it! I got too close to one of the monuments and knocked over a cup of milk that someone had layed there, and my host family told me to step back. Of course, they understood it was an accident, but if I had stepped on flowers layed at another person's grave, the same thing would happen! So just know this, so you can show your respects, without disrespecting others!

    There's a bar in Hiroshima named Atolanta. I should have know by the mispelled name that it wasn't for foreigners. They have an American Flag for a sign that says the bars name. So my friends and I try to go in and they tell me it's Japanese only. Well I don't go out that easily. I lit that chick up a little bit. I just don't have the patience for that ***. So if you end up in Hiroshima, don't waste your time going to this joint unless you're Japanese.

    They're not much of a danger as long as your ears can deal with their ***ty music they play. I guess they're out there for a good reason, but it's very naive to think that the world will be at peace by listening to their speeches and ***ty music.

    This sign made me laugh so I had to get a picture of it. It says "A Guinness a day turns your *** black and make you fat".

    If you have to relieve yourself you better do it before you go in the Castle. They don't have a bathroom inside.
