      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!

I spend a good long while looking at the departure board (Mostly because it only flashed English once every 30-40 seconds) to make sure that the train stopped at Hiroshima. I saw two trains on either side of my platform both heading in the right direction both I think stopping at Hiroshima. So I chose the faster train which so happed to be the second later train which had less stops. I saw the bullet ...

      Hiroshima (Miyajima Island Day Trip) - (Day 6)

      After the horrendous weather the day before, we awoke to a gorgeously bright and warm morning at our hotel in Hiroshima ready for a very long day trip to Miyajima Island; to be followed by a Shinkansen trip to Kyoto that evening.

      Miyajima Island is about 45 minutes from Hiroshima, in Hiroshima Bay. To get there you take a local train line for about 30 minutes to the small city of Miyajimaguchi, followed by a short ferry ride across to the island. ...

      Let’s not forget the power of hindsight here – it’s easy to do after the fact. Or perhaps I’m defending the winner’s version of history – the version I want to be true. Other quotes from U.S. military personnel were quoted too to strengthen the booklets position on the atomic bomb.

      While confident in its assessment, this is still a contentious question today, with historians today ...

Yvette gets some version of that a lot in Japan. The guy, on the other hand, basically just gregariously shouted English words that he knew while he fed us lots of noodles and beer.

So we decided to get dinner at the station. Tried for reserve seats but no luck. Dinner was sandwhich from ...
