Japan - Hiroshima and beyond

We spent part of a day visiting Hiroshima and the Peace Monument. Here are some pics of this and a couple other things.

Kenta's mom broke her pinky finger on the first day we were traveling (that's a whole other story). With her hand casted she looked like the little Shinto cat that you see all over Japan (Maneki-neko), so we took a picture of her with the cat. :)

Kenta always has a long list of the various types of food we need to eat while we're there. Here we're eating some shabu-shabu and some sukiyaki and some blowfish tempura. It was delicious.
