Japan – July 2005

Another past trip to document. Most of the details will be missing because my memory is getting fuzzy. This picture is from Hiroshima. There is a flame in the memorial that will be extinguished as soon as there are no more atomic bombs left on Earth.

A survivor of the bomb approached us as we were walking along the river. Her English wasn’t very good, but she wanted to say a prayer with us.

Japan is still one of my favorite trips with Andy and Jill. We were gone for two weeks – the longest trip we had ever taken at that point – and they were awesome.

Japan was one of the most tiring trips I have ever been on, but I would totally do it again.
Old Kyoto
Climbing Mount Fuji and restoring the soul – this was the primary reason for taking the trip. We didn’t make it to the top though because it was cold and freezing rain. We made it very close. We climbed over night hoping to see a great sunrise, but we were enveloped in clouds.

We sprinkled some of Lew’s ashes on Mount Fuji. Lew is DH’s father.

The Park Hyatt Tokyo – featured in the “Lost in Translation” movie. We didn’t stay here, but hung out in the bar and checked out the view.

Tsukiji Fish Market
