Travel: Nagoya to Hiroshima

David Bowie, the Spiders From Mars, the road crew and the rest of their entourage travelled from Nagoya to Hiroshima in Japan on 13 April 1973.

They were there for the Japanese leg of the Ziggy Stardust Tour, which had begun in Tokyo on 8 April.

Nagoya went smoothly and strictly in accordance with the TOA Attractions Inc. published plan of action. We were collected and transported as decreed, and the gig was another sensation. The next day was a travelling day and it was to be approximately a five hour journey to Hiroshima. In fact, there was nothing approximate about it – it was to be exactly a forty-eight minute car journey to the station, and exactly a four hours and thirty-seven minute train ride to Hiroshima. We have the itinerary memo to prove it don’t we?
