well, I was sad to leave korea, but I have to say that being in Japan is different but nice. It's a lot more expensive for sure but I think it's going to be a very fun time.
I took a beetle ferry over from Busan to Fukouka, it's a jetfoil ride and cruises along the sea very fast but smooth. Upon landing and going through imigration I was brought into a special room and had all my stuff searched for a good 30-45 minutes. It was definitely annoying in the time wasting way but I made the most out of it and tried to not let it bother me. I think by the end the custom guys sort of liked me, what do you think?
I then hopped on a 4 hour bus ride to Hiroshima. after first getting a room for the night in Hiroshima I did a quick google to find the best ramen in the city and discovered a spot highly recommended. Ga Ba ramen. http://www.ramenadventures.com/2010/05/gaba-in-hiroshima.html
It's my first ramen in Japan and OMG!!!! it was perfect.
I can't wait to try more and more ramen shops as I visit different area's of the country.
