My Assignment to Japan
This is a picture of my friend and I in Japan. In Spring 1999, Pat Rossi and I went on the four-day trip to Hiroshima. On the way we stopped at Miyajima Island, called one of Japan's three most beautiful spots. We are standing in front of the O-Torii of Itsukushima Shrine that was first built in the latter half of the 6th century; Itsukusima Shrine was remodeled into the present structure in 1168. The shrine was officially designated a precious asset of world heritage in 1996.

The day before we visited, a typhoon caused some major structural and tree damage. Anyway, the island has small deer roaming free in the streets -
one of which tried to eat Pat's map!
