Monday, June 18th & Tuesday, June 19th Reflection

On Monday June 18th we all went on a Tokyo Cultural Tour. We went to the Tokyo Tower: 

And a very beautiful shrine (shown below top right). After the tour, Jessica, Annie, Ari and I went to Kamakura where we visited the Great Buddha and the Kamakura Hasedera. Kamakura Hasedera was my favorite place because of all the hidden beauty of the flowers you see in the picture on the top left. 

On our free day, we had a lovely day in Hiroshima. We met a man named Hiro who gave us an amazing guided tour around the Atomic Bomb Memorial. We had a really eye-opening experience to meet this man who gave tours just for the love of sharing the story of the A-bomb and practicing his English.

We also went to the Children's Peace Memorial where we saw the many paper cranes made in memory of Sadako Sasaki. This experience was my most memorable experience in Japan.
