Mid afternoon we started by taking the train from Iwakuni to Hiroshima. At the Hiroshima train station we walked around some vendors and bought some food. Then we followed the crowd to the Mazda Zoom Zoom stadium. No, I didn't make that up. Promise.

At the seventh inning everyone inflated long red balloons. A song was played and then at the end we let them go and they flew everywhere. Not sure what it all meant, but it was very fun and exciting. The energy was contagious! Japan has some interesting baseball fans!
Unfortunately, the Carps lost 7 - 3. It was a very exciting game though! Afterwards we still felt it was early so we decided to go out and explore Hiroshima a little more.

What a fun night! The next home game is at the end of June. I hope to be there!
