First, some nice sakura.. On the way to Hiroshima
Then some stories, I guess?
Day 3, after somehow managing to reach Okayama on day 2, I was ready to move on. I thought I would take it easy and go to a place called "michi no eki" which means like "station of the road"There are quite many of them. My friend had told me you coul put up a tent in there(although i guess you can put your tent up anywhere.. Anyways, it was no good, but I found anothe good spot, put up the tent and slept badly because it was quite cold. The next day it was raining. I made a (bad) decision to continue anyways, and I was really wet. I went forward maybe 20 km that day.. The rest of the I was trying to dry myself. At this point I stayed one night in Fukuyama.
Finally, on the 5th day, I was able to reach Hiroshima. On the way I saw many things, like this abandoned hotel
It was like from Fallout(the game).
Then I saw some vending machines selling fresh vegetables and eggs and so on! Hi-tech farmers?
It was really mountainous on the way to Hiroshima.. The good thing about mountains is that after climbimg it, there's leisurous downhill waiting!
Ok, I guess that's all for those days.

But thanks to losing my way, I found a famous okonomiyaki restaurant, Tamachan.
Then it started raining and I waited a while at the restaurant, and when the rain stopped it was already dark.. But I had no choice but continue my trip, since there was no place to stay nearby. Finally, I got to Okayama around 11 pm. Shower feels really good after 8 hours on a bicycle, I tell you.
So,let's have some pictures!
Handbag mystery: I stopped at small forest to pick up some nice bamboo. In the forest, I found these bags, regular space between them.. They looked new, so I guess they were stolen and thrown a way?
Then, just some regular sceneries
That's all for now!

So, yesterday I left Kobe for Kyuushuu by bicycle. I cycled yesterday only for 5 hours due to late departure around 1pm and getting lost two times. The first time I was helped by some hiker to get back to road. And the next I had to rely on my phone to download a map, because I couldn't find a waypost to Himeji.
In the end I arrived to Himeji at 10 pm and luckily found a cheap netcafe right away and spent my night there. I continued my trip this morning 7:30.
To be honest, my body is aching in various places. But I hope it goes away soon enough. I only feel it when stopping for a longer time and my body cools down.
I'm now doing some laundry at an automatic coin laundry, just put in clothes and money, very useful!
here some pictures I've taken so far.

My friend from Nara invited me to visit Nara with him and some other friends. We had a nice day, visiting museum, some historical sites, climbimg a small mountain and eating some local specialties.
So let's share some picture's!
Closest 4 people are my friends
The lunch we ate, some special rice with many side dishes.(friteerattua rypsia muunmuassa)
The table at the restaurant was actually from a Husqvarna sewing machine!
I showed how to make a pine cone cow.
Really weird tree
