My first weekend in Hiroshima was spent seeing the sights. With my eyes. And what pretty sights they were. Sidenote: I also spent a small fortune on street car tickets and got sun burned. However, I will not bore you with words and instead will let these photographs tell you the story of my weekend.

This video here at the end features many, many greedy, colourful koi who were fighting over pellets in the gardens. And a tortoise. The gardens were so tranquil I almost fell asleep in a pavillion. That, in a nut shell, was my weekend.
