Nagoya Tokyu Hotel
Travel Blogs from Nagoya
So today began the long trek eastward back to Tokyo, the first leg being a 260 mile jaunt from Hiroshima to Nagoya. The Shinkansen was being perfectly punctual today as i would expect :) You know one thing i never really thought about but makes a lot of sense now i'm hear - for more than half of seemingly any Shinkansen journey you' …
I boarded the shinkansen not too long ago at the Tokyo Station and I'm on-route to Nagoya to see another old friend, Masa. The city seems endless as its skyscrapers, factories, and residential buildings stretch beyond the business district of Hanzomon proper. I sat on the right-hand side of the bullet train as instructed so that I could get a nice …
We had an early start this morning. We have a bit to do before we head to Nagoya on the train. The train ride ahead of us will be a 5 hour trip!

I like my room. It's clean, spacious, and has a view of the busy streets below. The service was superb! My only unpleasant experience was tripping over a stone partition at the doorway of the bathroom in the middle of the night. Why they designed it that way boggled my mind; any harder a trip, I would have had a bleeding toe. **OUTCH!!**
