My First Roadtrip in Japan p2 – Mitaki Temple in Hiroshima

The last time I was in Japan, I was on a study abroad trip. The class I was taking focused on the dropping of the atomic bombs so we visited both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and while in Hiroshima my class visited this really beautiful place called Mitaki Temple (which, for jetlag reasons, I mistakenly thought was in Kyoto, glad I got reminded it was in Hiroshima, otherwise who knows where I would have gone).

It feels a bit strange. As it was nearing 8:00, I felt like I had to get out of bed and start getting ready. At 8:31, I started to slightly panic and I wanted to check my schedule for the hundredth time to just, hundredth check if I really didn’t work today. Maybe, as I was a cocoon of blankets, my school was waiting for me to arrive…
