I love this vermillion colour, in which every Shinto temple is painted and which actually looks very attractive.

In the evening we went to one of the very few restaurants that don't close after 5 p.m. Most tourists only stay for a day trip and do not sleep here because the hotels are quite expensive. However, we went for the first time to a really small restaurant, like a pub with a bar, where only ten people fit in and you could watch your food getting made by an elderly woman and her (probably) daughter. They were cooking the local Hiroshima dish okonomiyaki on a teppanyaki cooker. Okonomiyaki is basically a thin egg pancake with cabbage, noodles, some pork and other ingredients, just the way you order it. Final topping barbecue sauce and shallots. (First restaurant in which I didn't freeze)
