Hiroshima in December

Not much chance to do anything so far. Got here at 22:30 and have a morning meeting so it's about time to hit the sack. We took the Nozomi from Tokyo, but there's not much to see out the window at night. Heiwa Odori Street is all lit up for Christmas. In the crowded cab I only managed a few crappy pics. This is probably the best of them.

My coworker showed me the newest version of Navitime on his Docomo 903SH. It was pretty cool, with Google map-style aerial maps, smooth scrolling and pretty good accuracy. On the train he opened it up an we saw our location on the map as we traveled along the track. it even showed our speed. In contrast my AU W42SA using EZNaviWalk showed my position in the middle of a mountain about 1 km from the track and couldn't keep up with the movement of the train. To be fair he was using the premium version of his service and I was using the free version of mine.

A 2-hour meeting became a 5-hour meeting, and we went straight back to the station to catch the Shinkansen back to Tokyo. I did get a pretty nice pic from the client's meeting room. Sad, huh? Anyway, looks like I might have to go back in a few weeks.

I managed to take a short clip from the shinkansen on the way back to Tokyo.
