John in Japan

Dad arrived Thursday evening, bringing with him an abundance of candy & presents. he was exactly like Santa Claus, flying in from the sky and dropping off gifts. He was pretty jolly too I suppose.

Welcome to Japan
Chillin out after his arrival.

No rest for the wicked. We were off to Hiroshima Friday morning where dad got his first taste of okonomiyaki. There is just no explaining this dish, famous in Hiroshima, you’ll just have to come here yourself and try it!

Dad’s first okonomiyaki!

Then, Saturday, we headed out for a day in Miyajima. We hiked Mt. Misen and saw more deer than is possible to count. We also climbed more stairs than is possible to count, but with sights like this, who’s complaining?

My deer!
Nice bum where ya from? Waterfall
The beautiful views on our hike!

More quality photos (i.e ones I didn’t just take on my iPhone) to come!
