I have bought 4days sanyo pass which entitled me to go as far as Hakada. But I didn't go that far. I bought that pass mainly for visiting Hiroshima. The last day of that pass, I was planned to go back to visit Hiroshima castle and shop in Hondori shopping mall street, and maybe in the afternoon go to visit Himeji. But the day's windy and raining all the morning in Hiroshima. I walked to the wrong direction from Hiroshima station which wasted lots of time. I walked pass mazda museum, which I didn't see on my first visit. After almost an hour walk in the rain I was lost in the middle of nowhere. It supposed to be only 15mins walk to shukkeien and maybe another 20mins to hiroshima castle. But on the way that I have been, I can see lots of residential houses, petrol station, bus stops, convenient shops and industrial factories. Not the place I intent to go, but somehow I can see another side of Hiroshima which is far away from tourist group. Street map have only japanese kanji, no more English affiliated. I gave up my trip to Himeji in the afternoon. I overheard it is under maintenance somewhere anyway. So I walked all the way back and caught a HiroDen to Hondori, enjoyed my afternoon shopping there.
