Screening report 20.07.2009

I had the screenings in Hiroshima for the first time! I prepared that since I came back to Japan!!

I arrived in Hiroshima on 18th July. I had an English screening at the World Friendship Centre. Japanese and American people watched the film and had the discussion after the screening.

On the way back to the hostel, I saw the Belgian backpackers who stayed in the same place with me. They went to Miyajima, too. In Miyajima, everything was expensive, so we didn't have lunch. So we went to have Okonomiyaki together.
