Japan: Hiroshima 1 - Moving to Hiroshima

Today I moved to Hiroshima to join my husband, Lance. He was transferred to Japan 3 months ago to work at Mazda. The flight was 13 hours long on Northwest Airlines, since they have direct flights from Detroit to Osaka. Then we had to hop on a 2 leg, 2 hour train ride to Hiroshima. Which is really really difficult when you're jet lagged (Japan is 14 hours ahead of EST). The first train ride is 1/2 hr long from the airport to Shin-Osaka (Osaka's train station). Then we had to switch trains to get on the Shinkansen. The Shinkansen btw, is AWESOME! They are the bullet trains that run thru Japan that can reach top speeds of over 200 mph. The sound standing next to it is like something you've never heard.

Tonight, we grabbed some quick bites at a night market and went to an American bar close by.
