Our room was 6 feet by 10 feet and if the mats had been rolled out they would have touched wall to wall. The sun was superheating the room through the frosted barred window to over 40C despite having the air conditioner "running". The western room the children were given on the other side of the building was not as hot but still far too warm for them to be comfortable in. Again the beds were wall to wall. We saw one of the newly remodelled rooms that one of our party was given which was spacious and more what was expected but as it was the only one available, we checked out and left. The part of town was also not so convenient with no restaurants and a tram ride required to the Pace Memorial Park and main parts of the town.

While confident in its assessment, this is still a contentious question today, with historians today ...
... privately owned bridge in the world spanning the wide 1.5km river - impressive stuff. In the museum we were taken on a tour through Mazda history, including a good example of an MX-5 which Tom got a snap with, and onto rotary engine technology and an overview of the production process. We then got to the best bit which was a raised walkway running above the fully operational U1 assembly line, which at 1.5 km is the longest in the world. It was amazing to witness the ...
... in French, but not enough to really carry on a conversation in it. After a quick ride back to the Kyoto station all that was left was to find our hotel. Even with a map, this ended up being a difficult task. Along the way we ran into a couple who spoke English who were also looking for the same hotel. Eventually we were able to find someone who could point us in the right direction and we were on our way. We were able to check in easy enough, but when the French pair tried ...
... of the message that they want to convey.
The museum, takes you through how Hiroshima was a thriving cultural city, often providing teachers who went on to the explore the world, through how the city became important during the war, then to the fateful day of the 6th April and the decisions that were made up to that point.
All very well presented stuff, except for a waxwork feature showing people walking the ...
