Iwakuni Explorer is a community where you can share your stories about living in Iwakuni and exploring Japan.  Share your stories, get ideas for future adventures, and maybe make some new friends! If you would like to contribute an article to our blog for future Iwakuni residents or visitors, please send us an email. What you will need for an article: a few pictures, a set of directions (maps and pins are great, but optional), relevant information (hours, prices, method of payment accepted, etc) and anything else that would be helpful to other travelers.

6.  Unless there’s a very good reason for it, we will not publish duplicate articles.  If you have information you would like to have added to an article, please do so in the comment section below each article or contact the author directly.  If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact one of us.

7.  Respect copyright and intellectual/artistic property.  Your articles and pictures submitted MUST be your own.

Hallo, in May 1990 my wife and I visited Hiroshima (we spent two weeks in Japan). We had a wonderful afternoon in Cafe Mozart, somewhere downtown Hiroshima. We got a little cardbord with the short piece of musical notes, we assume by Mozart. One of our friends could play it but neither she nor my wife did know the title of the music. I would appreciate if you could help me to find that out. With a proper email address I could attach the cardbord.
Thank you very much.
Regardsm Peter

I have been surfing online more than three hours as of late, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Thanks for your writing. I would like to say a health insurance broker also works for the benefit of the actual coordinators of any group insurance policies. The health insurance broker is given a directory of benefits sought by an individual or a group coordinator. What any broker can is try to find individuals and also coordinators which best complement those requirements. Then he gifts his advice and if the two of you agree, the particular broker formulates a legal contract between the two parties.

I generally uncover personally conflicted when producing a blog posting because I see myself personally creating more than people prefer to read, but I feel that I have got to do the subject matter proper rights by completely protecting it. I think that by pursuing some of these policies I finish up cutting out critical factors to the dialogue. I guess you could have to acquire a stability.
