Japan Week 1: Tokyo, Sapporo & Hiroshima (so epic)

... Peace Memorial Hall.
Of the other sights of interest, the Museums of Art (solely western "Masters" paintings) and Contempory Art (more interesting and relevant) respectively are more than acceptable, but two days is certainly all you need here.
The main thing one notices is how polite and respectful the Japanese are. It's so refreshing as to be almost a little too much at times. Tokyo is an insanely busy city (35 million people) however it works ...

Sun shine in Hiroshima

... staff could not be more helpful. The museum is very informative and it us impossible to imagine the horrors that took place on the day the atom bomb fell. The Park was beautifully laid out and there were lots of school children there asking foreign visitors about their visit. All very polite and speaking English! Had lunch in a noodle bar by pointing at pictures - very ...

    ... did this noodle, meat, egg and cabbage thing that ended up being delicious. On the way to the O-torii gate we got some icecream and decided to give parts of our cone to the deers. We clearly didn't see all of the signs saying not to feed them so we ended up having a little entourage of deer following us which made Jord's day so that was cool. Once we got to the O-torii gate we were amazed with what we saw. Not only were we surrounded by mountains and the ocean on a ...

    Following the hot bath we donned the robes provided for us in preparation for dinner.
    At the appointed time another young lady in a kimono came to take us to another tatami room where we were to eat.
    Once seated at the low table the first of many courses was brought to us. ...

      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.

      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!
