    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!

    ... 160; The voice on the end of the phone attempts to answer my questions but we are still getting nowhere and with my well know ability to say no we end up with the bikes and the guy showing us into the castle.  Jill is not amused but we're on the bikes, it's a glorious day and on holiday so f*ck it. The bikes take a bit of getting used to because of the small wheels and the electric assistance gizmo but we arrive at the castle tower park up and use the on-board lock although ...

    ... that could include many colors. It is rare for them to see different eye colors because they all have dark brown eyes. As you can tell, teachers work with each other a lot, especially the English teachers. It is a lot easier to collaborate because each teacher can help translate. It would be pointless for English teachers to teach without the help of the Japanese teachers because the students wouldn't understand anyway! So I am certainly learning to appreciate working with ...

    ... 15am on August 6th 1945. This is now a UNESCO World Heritage site as is Auschwitz. There is a bell tower which rings at 8.15 am every morning. The Atomic Bomb Dome is one of the only buildings left standing after the bomb dropped- mainly because it was brick built. The top was originally copper but the heat of the blast melted this and destroyed the interior and people in it but most of the walls survived. They were going ...

The chefs would cook it on a grill before having it delivered to another grill centred in our table to keep it warm while we devoured this new dish. We really enjoyed it Ryan accompanying it with a bottle of sake a he didn't realized you could order just a glass. Smelling of ...

    On our last day In Miyajima we hiked hundreds of steps to the top of mount Misen. This was meant to be a really nice peaceful walk however there were many people who had the same idea as us as well was some super hyperactive children who must have had a severe case of ADHD. At the top of mt. Misen there is a lovely view of the surrounding islands and Hiroshima.

    Onomichi very quaint but probably a thumbs down, Hiroshima and Miyajima thumbs ...
