Tokotsu ramen is meat based stock, but there are miso-based ramens and other kinds as well.

Hiroshima is famous for its Tsukemen too. Its safer than most ramen ( for vegetarian )..

That sounds great, is it sold everywhere, or specifically anywhere near the train station!

I'll ask my fiance about it and get back to you. She has talked about tsukemen before and I am headed off to Hiroshima in a few hours. There are lots of ramen shops, I was familiar with one but it was closed last time I wanted to stop by.

Maybe a change in plan, it could be that our first stop will now be Okayama, not Hiroshima. Depends which Koi breeders are harvesting their Koi first, this could mean us changing our plans. It's up to our UK based Koi Dealer where we go to first, as he is in touch with the breeders all the time, so he knows their harvesting dates.

I'm guessing that Okayama isnt such a large place as Hiroshima?

I'm also guessing that getting a train/bullet train to Okayama is the same as getting one to Hiroshima, so that shouldnt be a problem for us. I've checked out the Hyperdia link for trains and prior to the bullet train there is a short journey to JR Kyoto Line. Is this a short walk to a specific platform, or a short train jouney to there?

So if we end up in Okayama, are there places to visit there which would be of interest to 5 English guys?????
