From there we went to the actual museum. I was really suprised to hear how Japan initially became involved in WWII and of their battles with China and Russia. They had many artifacts recovered after the bombing and lots of information about the rebuilding of the area. The museum had an entire area which was showing the number of nuculear weapons in the world and strongly encouraged their destruction.
We returned to the city are and strolled through some side streets. Kim and I each purchased some Sake from a liquor store which was a neat experience since we couldn't read the lables and the clerk didn't speak much english. We asked him if we picked good sake and he lined up the bottles then pointed at each one saying, "Good...bad" etc.
Getting on the boat was neat because this was the port where our ship was built. As we sailed away there were children singing to us and performers playing traditional drums.
