[Japan Travel]: Hiroshima - Day 2 (part 2)  

Sorry for the long wait. Here's finally part 2 of day 2 (^-^'') in Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Day 2 (part 2) (April 2nd, 2010):

Let's take a walk! )

I wish I had a Japanese garden with a lot of differen cherry blossom trees and stuff XD )

Back at the Memorial Peace Park )

The next day, I checked out and took the Shinkansen, just to get off at the next station already XD which was Fukuyama with its nice castle and a lot of cherry blossoms.
Coming up next: Fukuyama and Onomichi

Thanks for reading

[Japan Travel]: Hiroshima Day 2 (part 1 °-°'')  
After finally posting the grand camera comparison entry I have enough time to continue posting my actual travel entries.

We're still in Hiroshima. This will already be the last day. Well, officially I stayed one more day in Hiroshima, but spent the whole day on Miyajima, so that doesn't really count, I guess?
But don't worry, this is not the last Hiroshima entry as I had to split it into 2 parts (and you should get used to it, that'll happen with most other days as well ... took way too many photos this time! Spring is evil I tell ya!!!) (°-°'') .....
Without further ado, let's start :D

Hiroshima Day 2 (part 1 -.-'') (April 2nd, 2010):

Read more... )

Next stop was already Hiroshima Castle (*__*)v

You know, it's really difficult to pick preview pics when there are so many different flower pics to choose from XD ... )

Okay, let's finish this! )

Up next: I went all the way up to the Peace Pagoda and stopped by at various temples and shrines on my way.
Please look forward to "Hiroshima Day 2 - part 2" (^-^''') ..... tbc

Thanks for reading.
Comments are love (○゜ε^○)v ♪

[Japan Travel]: Hiroshima Day 1  

It's a working day (on which I usually don't post), but it seems I caught a cold and thus don't feel like doing anything else . Furthermore, I need to keep the photos coming, otherwise we'll never ever finish ;P
I think I mentioned it before. I came back with over 5000 photos from 2 cameras, after 2 rounds of sorting out that was down to 3800ish and now for posting here on LJ it's about 770 photos. Still too many so that I have to spilt up several days again. I don't wanna have entries with 130+ photos in it and I'm pretty sure you wouldn't like that either (^-^'')

Anyway, let's start without any further delay.
My first day in Hiroshima was super super rainy, thus not so many (nice) photos and a lot of crappy photos taken inside the bomb museum instead.
I hope that nevertheless this entry will be interesting. Don't worry there will be enough cherry blossom photos in future entries, so you can consider this entry as somewhat special, because on no other day the atmosphere and weather was like this.

Hiroshima Day 1 (April 1st, 2010):

I'm singing in the ra~~ain! )

Probably one of the most famous spots in the park.
If you look through the hole you can see the "A-Bomb Dome". As it's so popluar, it was quite difficult to get a good photo.
There were so many other people (despite the rain) XD

In the museum ... )

And that's it already.
I hope you enjoyed it despite the rainy weather - I did.
More to come soon. Gotta prepare my lunch and then I'm off to work.

[Japan]: Hiroshima, BBQ, Matsuri, Food  
Hey everybody,

how are you?
It's been a while and a lot of things were going on lately.
First of all I want to let you know that one of my photobucket accounts' bandwidth has expired. I don't have the time to reupload ALL of the pics, but they will be automatically back after some days (maybe 2 weeks), so please be patient.
I'm sorry for this, but it seems quite a lot of people were staring at my pictures, far more than commenting here , so I was kind of surprised that the bandwidth broke down XDDD

Anyway last Friday I went to Hiroshima for the first time (!) together with [ profile] leviosa8. I didn't check out any sightseeing spots, because she has seen all that stuff already and I can go another time alone to do so, so we spent a lot of time SHOPPING for fandom stuff. It was a great day. Actually I wanted to do another "Day of my Life"-entry for this day, but I was so busy that day that I forgot to take photos after a while (^^'')> .... sorry!
We went there by local train which took quite a while (~ 3 hours), but was ABSOLUTELY worth it! The landscape and the ocean, the nature, mountains, all the green, it's so beautiful. I tried to take some photos out of the train:

Hiroshima, the sea, random discoveries )

On Saturday was a normal working day. Nothing special to report.

On Sunday though we had a BBQ. We, that is our boss, his family and all (?!) of my coworkers.
Well .... all is not true. Actually I was the ONLY non-Japanese person there! All the other foreign teachers didn't come for various reasons XDDDD .... But for me it was great! Surrounded by Japanese people only, I got to practice my Japanese quite a lot and it was REALLY on of the best days here so far (well all days off when I can leave this small city are great! XD) .....

The SEA!!!! HOMG!!! And yummie food and and and ... kyah! <3 )

Read more... )

So as you can see I've been quite busy lately. During work days I don't have time for anything and when I do stuff like THAT *points above* on my days off, then I really don't have time for anything else.
I still have to plan my vacation which will start soon, but I didn't have time yet.
Any recs for me? I wanna go to Beppu and Nagasaki. Anything else that you can recommend to me and that is not tooooo far away from .. let's say Hiroshima/Fukuoka????
I'd really appreciate it!

I will be quite busy in the next few weeks as well. Just wanted to let you know, so please don't expect me to write or comment much :/
Sorry ;__; .....

And finally as always: FOOD PHOTOS :D )

Hungry? Well, I am! )

Okay that's all for now!
Going to take a break now and eat the ogurapan :D

See ya! (^-^)/
