It’s been a minute! Summer heat is dying down, replaced with cool autumn air. I am very happy to be out of that mess.
I had never been to Hiroshima. With some time on my hands, off I went.
Fuji is amazing–I did not expect to get this kind of view from the train.
This is what Japan looks like mostly–large apartment buildings made up of dozens of layers of apartments.
A large moat surrounded the castle.
Looking northwest into the mountains.
Despite the castle being right downtown, Hiroshima is also relentlessly modern.
Two friends at sunset.
Cafe Obscura in Hiroshima. They have a Tokyo location a few stops from my house.
Everywhere I went I saw this random style of architecture. It’s just a tunnel shoved between two buildings that looks like it’s missing the other reinforcement on the left underneath it.
Nice trip. I need to find my way to the mountains next time.
