We went to Hiroshima city for the second time to visit Hiroshima Prefectural government (HPG). Due to the heavy rain which caused a serious flood disaster in Hiroshima, we shorten the schedule and left after lunch in order to secure the way back in Higashi Hiroshima. The bus we took was full and transportation system to Higashi Hiroshima was suspended a few hours later we left Hiroshima.
The lecture on HICARE (Hiroshima International Council for the Radiation-exposed) project was originally planned in the afternoon, offered by Mr. Takeshi Yahata, Atomic Bomb Survivors Support Division, HPG. We greatly appreciated Mr. Yahata to kindly re-schedule it to the morning time. It was fortunate that the courtesy call on Governor was held as planned. However, it was unfortunate that we had to cancel other programs such as visiting Hiroshima Prefectural Peace Project Team and the Hiroshima Prefectural Assembly.
