      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!

      ... These are very popular here and very tasty. We had to have a couple of beers to help wash it down, yum. To finish the night off we went to a cute little bar which looks like a bedroom, it's nickname is Beyonce's bedroom. You sit on the floor on mattresses and have a drink or meal. We had dessert and a plum wine called umeshi. I ordered the macha ice cream which was really fresh tasting but creamy. Yum. We got the hour long train back to David's place by about 12.30 and zonked ...

We let the restaurant noses running from the steaming soup and caught a tram, then train, grabbed a warm cup of coffee and then boarded then ferry to Miyajima Island. As we floated closer to island the O-Torii Gate came bursting into view. The red, 60 ton gate welcomed us as we floated past it to port. Once off the ferry we encountered what we had been warned of in many of the tourist brochures but not really ...

It was a very confronting and sad experience. Actually Seeing items of clothing and possession from the victims and items that were damaged from the blast had a much stronger affect on me than reading books ...

      ... centre. It was a beautiful track with lots to see but you could tell as soon as you were near the pavilion by all the people stopping to take photos. We took quite a few and got separated from our tour guide, but we knew what time to be back at the bus by so we were fine. We continued along taking lots of photos of the beautiful scenery around the park before checking out the gift shop. There was not much, as I have noticed about most of Japan they don't have too many souvenirs, and ...

      The following day I went to the island of Miyajima to see the famous gate in the water. Much to my surprise the gate wasn't in the water as the water had receded quite a ways and people were able to actually walk up to the torii ...
