It's past midnight and Im in my new bed, at Hiroshima. In the morning (still at Takayama) we had some spare time. Mostly I was packing, then watchin tv. There was this drama called Brother Beat on, it's about 3 hot brothers XD I liked the eldest the most. We left Takayama at 11.30am. This town was really fun.
All of today (daytime) was spent travelling. We went on three trains and one tram. I was asleep a lot though. Japan is great coz u can sleep and no one will steal your luggage. Finally we arrived in Hiroshima. Upon arrival, it didn't look so exciting. But now we have many maps and it looks like a great place to explore. Our hotel is not impressive, I have even been given a Western style room with two beds! I intend to move out, and into the next vacant Japanese room, asap.
At 6pm or so we went to dinner. We had Okonomiyaki, a Japanese pizza type thing, made of salad and noodles. It was nice to try but it was expensive and I couldn't finish it all. Afterwards, Pete, Steve, David and I went exploring the nightlife of Hiroshima. We were totally blown away and amazed! It's like a mini Tokyo! Neon lights everywhere you look! And young people and tons of shops! We stayed till the shops closed, about 10pm. David said "We died in Takayama and now we're in heaven!"
Then we hung out by the river. It was nice and it was a warm night. Finally we bummed with our guide in the hotel lobby. Upon our request, he even took us sightseeing outside some love hotels! LOL The hotels didn't allow us in XD
