[Tuesday 3rd May]
Went to the flower festival in Hiroshima, which didn't actually seem to involve a lot of flowers... There was a large parade, and all the trappings of a Japanese festival I've become familiar with from past experiences - stalls selling things-on-a-stick, etc. Spent a large part of the afternoon shopping for presents for Chie's birthday, and realised how difficult it was for me to shop in Japan. It's not just the obvious difficulties of language and currency conversion, but also knowing which sorts of shops to go to for which sort of things... I'm sure I'll get the hang of it though.
