応援団 for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp (広島東洋カープ)

If you ever go to a baseball game in Japan, you want to sit in the oendan (応援団). This is the cheering section, and it’s way more fun than anywhere else, even though they are the farthest from home plate. These are the cheap seats but also the fun seats.

On this hot and humid day in Hiroshima the cheap seats were sold out so I was forced to buy a seat near third base. The views were better, but the best part was that the kind, little, old Japanese lady next to me used her fan on me the entire game like I was her son or something.

Hiroshima Peace Memorial (AKA Atomic Bomb Dome or Genbaku Dōmu)

When I visited the Atomic Bomb Dome in 2013, work was being done on it. The construction was not to bring it back to its former, pre WW2 state; instead, it was to keep it from falling to pieces during an earthquake.
