I’m off to Hiroshima in a few hours. This will be the second train trip of my journey. The first being a 48 hour hellish experience from Dallas to LA. I expect this to go much smoother.
The photos I have from Yakushima should be amazing. I was at Yakusugi early in the morning yesterday and the clouds were still hanging in the forrest. The effect was sort of surreal with all the mist and the cedar trees.
I got my Japan Rail pass, but the route from here to Hiroshima isn’t direct. There are three or four trannsfers I have to make. It should be fine, but you never know. I think at least part of the trip is via bullet train.
