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.

... way back down I cheated and took the cable car down >: ) hehe
Finally my last noteworthy experience in Hiroshima consisted of trying the famous capsule hotel. A hotel that you rent you a capsule to sleep in and nothing else..sounds like an interesting experience right? Interesting yes, pleasant..not so much. I had the hostel staff help me book this night as there is NO english at all in a capsule hotel. At least this one, is not meant ...
... it a lot - for me it was more like eating omelet with noodles and seafood.
We have then visited gorgeous Shukkeien garden, which has been designed in a miniaturized landscape manner, modelled on Xihu in Hangzhou China. The garden was destroyed by the atomic bomb and restored by the Hiroshima Perfectural Board of Education. We saw many people having their lunch break, enjoying the scenery, following sakura and even taking wedding ...
... her knees only long enough to reach her destination and then return to her knees to serve again.
The food was exquisitely presented and consisted of many different tastes , textures and colours. Most of the dishes I had never eaten before. I have never had a meal so sumptuous.
Returning to our room at the end of the meal we discovered that staff had prepared our beds in the room and moved the low tables to the ...
