    Yep. Was probably one of the most visually spectacular parts of the entire trip. Some of the best temples I've ever seen.

    What a beautiful place in general. It was much needed after the visceral kick in the gut of the Hiroshima bomb museum.

    That sounds like loads of fun.

    Holy morning after, Batman...

    I love Korean food!

    I sometimes use this stuff for grilling marinades.

    We have tons of Korean style takeout places but this is a great little hole in the wall between Waikiki and downtown Honolulu.
    It is my go to for real Korean food.
    It's really, really good and you get dozens of "banchan" (side dishes).

    It's not bad by any means, it's just not my favorite.

    It's different.
    There are some unusual flavors in there.

    I did it the opposite way round. Saved my kick in the gut for after dessert.

    In all seriousness though, the museum was weirdly enjoyable. Not because I'm some sadistic monster that loves seeing suffering and destruction but because the message of forgiveness and the resilience to keep moving forward were impressive. The fact that Hiroshima, which most people gasp at the suggestion of visiting, has rebuilt itself to be one of the prettiest cities I've been to in Japan was inspiring.

    It's not my favourite cuisine either, as I prefer both Japanese and Thai food personally, but it's certainly interesting. The Korean Barbecue in Seoul was particularly enjoyable.

    Bulgogi is awesome and traditional stone wear dishes are fantastic.

    Your trip sounds like a blast.

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
