I went back to my hometown, Hiroshima about 2 weeks ago with my family. We went there by plane from Haneda. It took about 1 hour. My children slept during the flight, so there were no problems. My father came to pick us up at the airport in Hiroshima. We drove about 30 minutes to my parents house. Later that day, we had a bbq.
The next day, my family and I went to a jam factory near my parents home. The name of the factory is Aohata Jam. When we arrived, I found out that you have to have a reservation to go on a tour of the factory. Since we didn't have a reservation, we couldn't do anything. We could only see the souvenir store inside the factory. Even if I had a reservation, my kids wouldn't have been able to enter anyway because they are under 6 years old. I want to go back again when they are old enough. We enjoyed buying jam at the souvenir shop.
We also visited a small island named O-Kunoshima. We took a ferry; it took about 10 minutes to get there. There were many small rabbits hopping around freely on the island. Anyone could feed them and play with them. My kids enjoyed it very much. My wife and I rented bicycles to ride around the island with my kids.
1. How long did it take to go to Hiroshima?
2. Why couldn't we go on a tour of the jam factory?
3. What was on the island?
4. Where were the rabbits? In a zoo?
