Remember my previous post about rainy morning at Osaka Castle. It took a while, to get dry, basically, to reach to my dry clothes, finding a suitable toilet and change. And I threw away my white blouse to wastebasket, as it was now half purple, because of my purple trousers. After this change and a lunch in a not-worth-to-tell restaurant, it was time for: SHOPPING!!
Where would you go in Osaka to stay dry on a rainy day and to do nice shopping. Shinsaibashi area is a perfect place, where open air street shops are safe from rain, because of the covered street.
Unfortunately, we had just about an hour before leaving for Hiroshima, so we just enjoyed some souvenir shops and some girly shops.
In the afternoon we headed for Hiroshima, with our bus. 280 km far, about 5 hours drive by bus. Normally, on a trip like this you would not have anything to tell. But in Japan, this is not the case. We stopped twice during the travel, and both our stops were including many amusements and yummies.
First thing to explore was the toilets. People who have been to Japan, will definitely understand what I mean, right? It takes quite some time to get out of the toilet safely and dry. Lot’s of electric buttons, to make sure that you make the most out of your toilet experience. Well, we did manage.
The second challenge of the highway stop, was the delicious looking food. They all look nice, but only some taste good. So it is a real puzzle to find the right food.
After an explore of the shops and nice and funny chat with the chestnut lady, it was time to leave for Hiroshima.
