      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!

      ... Starbucks breaky at our further morning train departures! We arrived in the massive Kyoto station complete with department stores and restaurants galore. Luckily, the Kyoto station is well equipped with info desks at every corner so with the help of the lovely info ladies we found our hotel 2 minutes from the station. We connected to speedy Wifi in our hotel room and enjoyed some Facetiming with Mom and Doug and then ...

      We kept wandering through the village until we came across a very busy restaurant that had a mix of Japanese and Western seating and appeared to be very well patronised by Japanese customers (always a good sign).

      As Wendy and Cindy had already had a few things, we ordered one meal between the three of us. I'm not much of a foodie so ...

      ... and instead headed straight to Hiroshima.

      We arrived in Hiroshima around midday and checked in early to our hostel. Now that we had an extra unplanned half day, we could take our time walking around the city. As usual, we walked around searching for somewhere to eat while we all abstained from taking the lead on picking a particular type of cuisine for lunch. After walking away from the main strip we did a full circle without even coming close ...

      Our guide said the first question she usually gets from tourists is about how to pronounce the city's name. It really doesn’t matter, she said. Given the way Hiroshima is pronounced in Japanese, both are correct.

      With that issue out of the way, we could begin our excursion with a visit to Shukkeien Garden, which dates back to 1620. It was originally designed as part ...

I wasn't clear to me whether he meant that the Americans treated him well, or that the United States was economically so powerful. He was also surprised to find out how difficult it was to understand English--the education he'd gotten in English from the Presbyterian missionaries in his area before the trip just wasn't enough. ...
