    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!

Back on the main boulevard we decide to head to Hijiyama Park on the edge of the city Jill starts talking and I look behind get distracted and ...

When we were leaving the museum there was a booth set up to make origami cranes so we decided to try it out.

    We walked to the pasta place. I had pizza, it was good.

    ... is the Memorial Museum. Parts of this are quite hard to see. There is a scale model of what Hiroshima looked like for 2.5 km around the blast- most of it was flattened- and there are many personal items donated that people had on them when the blast went off including charred clothing. Many items belonged to teenagers as they were all in the area building fire breaks in case of an air strike from the US. The item that hit me the most though was a burnt tricycle that ...

(The three-hour shows are most days at noon and 6 p.m.) I didn't understand a word of the songs or dialogue, but the performance is a blend of traditional Japanese theater, postwar Enka songs, and a bit of current pop music. Sitting in front of me was the leader of a posse of a dozen women who are ardent fans of the actors. Her silver tote bag was filled with snacks for the ...

Liam's name means love, truth, dreams which they were quite impressed with, but after about an hour of them saying Steph repeatedly and laughing they came up with something that didn't resemble her name at all. Either steki-fanny or stefa which means really amazing leaves. They were more pleased by ...
