Hiroshima

Hiroshima weekend

I went down to Hiroshima last weekend to see Masashi, my old high school homestay family’s brother, and his wife Maiko and son Hinata. Masashi lives in Mihara, a city about 60km east of Hiroshima, on the Seto Naikai (Seto Inland Sea) coast.  As the local delicacy is tako (octopus), we went to lunch at a local tako restaurant, and had tako everything.  Tako soup, tako sashimi, tako fried rice.  It was tako-licious.  Then for dinner, we had home made takoyaki (tako dumplings).  After making a few batches, we even managed to shape them properly in small round balls.  We were quite proud of our efforts.
