Gotsu: A World With-in


My journeys on the train eventually landed me in the great city of Hiroshima. There I was to meet my lady at the station and what a truly wonderful greeting I got too. In the shining city lights of Hiroshima at the turn styles outside Hiroshima Station was her waiting for a big hug that I promised her upon my arrival.

From there we ate a hardy plate of Hiroshima’s fabulous Okonomiyaki then walked along until we found a Tully’s coffee shop. From there we went to her home in the prefecture over– Shimane. There I spent about 5 days relaxing and enjoying some wonderful company & food.

In that time we also wandered about the prefecture. Shimane is a beautiful prefecture with lush green forests filled with evergreens and bamboo alike. It’s situated on the coast as well with Route 9 that connects most of the major cities along a gorgeous coastal road overlooking the Japan sea. On one of our excursions we went as far as Matsue where we took a ride on a boat around Matsue Castle’s Moat. Ending at a shop that had a micro brewery featuring Pale Ales and Pilsner beers.

It was real good to spend sometime with Lexi especially after all that’s happened up north. After about 5 or so days, however I left to go more further south to Hakata/Fukuoka where I met up with Alex on our loop to the ‘steemy’ Onsen town of Beppu.

More to come…

  1. Gorgeous coastline, huh? Aomori has some pretty nice coast in my opinion. Too bad Matsue is so far away–there is a lot to see, and if you go a little further north you hit Tottori–which I have only been to once, but have very fond memories of as well.
