      A great hotel. Rooms are clean but small and a bit noisy but staff are lovely and facilities are great. Has a laundry, free wifi in the lobby, free breakfast (Japanese style only), free drinks and coffee all day. Great location.

      Traditionally Japanese; very few drawbacks.

      This hotel is amazing. Location is very near to the train station, and all or most attractions are not a long walk from the hotel at all. The hotel itself is traditionally japanese, with very small rooms and typical japanese amenities. They have completely free continental breakfasts, computer/internet use, and washer/dryer use. The only 'drawback' is that this hotel is meant for Japanese people. As such, they know very little to no english at the front counter. However, only a basic understanding of japanese should be needed for them to understand you. They are very, very nice and cordial. I brought a pre-printed list of places I was interested in going with romanji and kanji characters. I knew enough japanese to ask 'where is it', 'how much is it' and 'how far'. They gave me a map and directions and even called a cab if I needed it (as well as estimated cab and/or train fare). If you don't know any japanese, a phrase book will help you out.
      The continental breakfast lasts around 3 hours or more. There is also a complimentary drink bar with free drinks 24/7. The only 'problems' with these were that they too are traditionally japanese. The breakfast consists of donuts, riceballs, miso soup, and other japanese dishes. The drinks are a combination of japanese sodas/pop/juices and some coca-cola products.

      I personally thought the true immersion was a plus, not a negative. And for the cost? This was one of the cheapest places I could find. The service is amazing for what you pay for, and if immersion into Japanese culture is what you're looking for, this hotel is the way to go. Even many hostels cost more than this hotel did!

After that i walked around downtown Hiroshima again and there were a lot of pretty girls al dressed up for the evening, although i suspect that some of them have a profession that requires horizontal activities. ;-) Funny thing is that even tough they are ...

      ... and we had seen that there was a Japanese restaurant in the hotel so we decided to head back there for dinner. When we arrived at the fifth floor and saw the menu Andrew saw $65-$80 meals and said no :-( so we went to the lobby level where they had a buffet. As we walked in we could see an Australian flag hanging up. We soon found out they had an Australian theme in their restaurant in March/April so much for us eating Japanese. It was also a buffet so the food was average. They also had ...

      ... the museum, we had a brief wander around the city before going for some dinner. We went into a specialist okonomiyaki arcade. 3 floors of small stalls each with their own take on a local dish. The food was delicious, and the portions huge. The concept of okonomiyaki is that your food is cooked on a hot plate in front of you. The dish consists of a pancake topped by noodles, topped by shredded cabbage, topped by meat, topped by an omelette, topped with special sauce - a very filling ...

      ... down the harping area on my way to the station to catch the train towards Miyajima. Miyajima is an island about 2km off of the Hiroshima mainland and is accessible by the JR ferry. I roam the Island with its many deers and decide in an instant that I want to hike up Mt. Misen. This course is about 3km long and the elevation is 1300m. It takes me exactly an hour for the way up and half the time the way down. The way up would have been slightly shorter if not for this metre long snake ...
