We rode a boat - I forget how much it cost - out to the gate.  They even had us wear conical hats.  I looked pretty silly but my girlfriend looked very nice.  Did not climb the mountain but we got to go into some kind of temple with really, really steep staircases.  Beautiful view.  I wanted to eat all the food but we had a personal guide and our time ran out.  Hiroshima is where my grandfather and mother (father's side) came from.  We still have distant relatives there but we have not had contact with them in decades.  We owned a plot of land there
 - I think the government probably took it as no one wanted to keep growing rice.  I would like to go back one day - the guide later emailed a picture of the exact area where my grandfather's family came from.
