[Thursday May 4th]
The day started with the usual present opening ceremony - I think this is now the third time I've been with Chie at her parent's house on her birthday (also last year and in 2002), so this has now become a very familiar experience.
When asked what Chie wanted to do for the rest of her birthday, it seemed to consist largely of going back into the centre of Hiroshima and doing more shopping - so today was a bit like the previous day really. The Flower Festival takes place in Hiroshima during Golden Week, so we also went to see a bit of that. I managed to catch a brief glimpse of HG - a very famous Japanese comedian (although I suspect his popularity is now dwaining a bit - you can't expect to be famous for long in Japan).
In the evening we had dinner at the "Greasy but Tasty" American style grill place called The Shack, which both Chie and I had been having a bit of a craving for recently.
