      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!

      ... year old boy had been on in his front yard when the bomb went off burning him and the bike. I can not say I enjoyed the afternoon. It was far too sobering and emotional for that but it is definitely worth seeing as it is such an important part of history. A very brief stop off at Hiroshima castle, completely destroyed in the blast but now rebuilt, for a photo followed and then we said goodbye to Sami and got onto a busy bullet train up to Osaka. To get to Universal ...

      ... Course B continued with similar scenery; an overgrowth of trees following the river on an elevated path. After 10 minutes of this continued scenery the trail eventually went past a large roped off cabin. The building looked like it used to be a café that was closed off for renovations. A small clearing had some benches for relaxation or lunch overlooking the river, with a toilet block for those in need of relief. The path headed upwards once again as ...

      A travel blog entry by theshis on Aug 10, 2014

      After several lazy days in Osaka, we took the bullet-train to the city that needs no introduction, unfortunately - Hiroshima.
      Due to the weather, the trains were super late (for Japan) and we ended up sitting in a reserved seat although our ticket was not reserved.
      Hiroshima has no metro so we took a street car to the hotel, checked in and got upgraded. Again, we were assigned a smoking room which we immediately switched.
      We visited the memorial museum ...

Across the river is the Peace Memorial Park which was built as a reminder of the events of August 6th 1945, but more importantly serves as a way of encouraging the nuclear disarmament of all countries of the world. At the Peace Memorial Park we were given an insight into the events of WW2, it was quite a distressing museum as the recollections of what happened the day the bomb ...

A great day out, but glad to be home to our small Japanese hotel room and getting ready to head to the next ...
