No More Nukes!!

A travel blog entry by thecurries2012

So after days and even weeks on trains we were quite excited to try out the Japanese Bullet trains or Shinkansen, these trains travel at 240-300kmh so not far off the Maglev in China. So after covering 381km in just an hour and a half this was quite impressive, about the same as flying across the country but without all the hassle of air travel. I …

  • spent the afternoon catching up on the subtlies of sumo; brutal!
  • Found a specialist okonmayki restaurant; huge
  • great place to get around. Friendly vibe; wouldn't call it as sophisticated as some of the other cities ...

    ... outside restaurants! There are lots of signs saying don't feed them but these are ignored, you even see parents letting their kids stroke them, which I'm quite astounded at.

    The island is famous for the O-Torii gate, which is an amazing shrine in the sea, standing 16.6 meters high. It looks fantastic set against the scenery and it very photogenic. We think people must have sailed under it to reach the shrine.

    ... street car" (aka tram)!!! We then proceded to wander round the Peace Memorial Park, which included the Cenotaph for the A-bomb victims and the Peace Bell (see pictures below). We then looked round the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum. It was absolutely facinating and answered all of our questions of why the atomic bomb was dropped. After picking up some lunch from our favourite supermarket (seven eleven) we wandered back in the direction of the train station. Arriving in good ...

    I got up early, picked my luggage from Khaosan Kabuki, got my JR-Pass and took the train to Hiroshima. Long trip. We saw a lot of cities - those in Kanto plain are similar to each other, modern, rectangle, gray. It rained a lot near Osaka. Very depressing. All the plain is covered with buildings. Big cities - not villages. The mountains look nice, green with forests. I hope they will not build there too.
    Finally we got to Hiroshima, which is warm ...

      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!
