Later we went to the Spectacles Bridge (Megane bashi) which is the first stone bridge in Japan
We went to the Urakami Church, a catholic church destroyed when the A-bomb was dropped pretty much right over it. (They missed their target--the ship building portion of nagasaki and hit a catholic church). Again, more info on that hopefully to come later (All the info there was in Japanese but one of the classes I will be taking will should include a field trip with our english speaking prof).
Later this afternoon, we went bowling (Nagasaki was the first to have a bowling alley in Japan). We had a good time. I would post pictures of all that went on today, but my camera just ran out of batteries.
We had chanpon for dinner-a Nagasaki specialty made of everything- noodles, sea food, meat, vegetable, etc. Chanpon means assortment. It was delicious
At dusk we took the skyway to the top of inasa-yama for a night view of Nagasaki. Spectacular! My pictures unfortunately did not do it justice. More to come later!
