On this particular day, The Princess was scheduled for a “girls day” with her sister and mother. Yet while the ladies were out shopping, Koji-san and I went to visit the Hiroshima Memorial Peace Park and Museum, a beautiful albeit somber place honoring the victims of the atomic bombing of Japan. Upon returning from my visit, I immediately wrote an impression of my experience based on a the photos I took, and the notes I jotted down.
I felt that I should provide some form of introduction, even if only a small one, prior to divulging those writings here—and yet it did not seem right to add anything to the original prose. We will therefore provide the original impression alone and unaltered as our next entry.
In the meantime, it is our recommendation that you try to find some tiny detail in your everyday life—the smaller the better—and take a moment to make it look just a tad prettier and more intentional than it did before.
And if you can manage to do that to all things on an everyday basis, you will be half-way to Japan your own self.
So, until tomorrow… Mata ashita ne!
