Visiting Hiroshima was one of the highlights of this bikepacking trip. Actually, it is one of the reasons why we decided to do this. We imagined and felt the sadness and suffering of the people here when we saw the A-bomb Dome . We agreed and understood the meaning and objective of the Peace Flame and Cenotaph. We saw the Children Statue and read about the story of Sadako Sasaki. On a brighter note, we were able to try out the famous Okonomiyaki of Hiroshima. Cycling here in Hiroshima Prefecture was also awesome. We took the Seto Inland Sea route via a ferry ride to Etajima Island and then we biked all the way to Kure City where we spent the night inside our tent in a public park.
