Trains to Hiroshima

A travel blog entry by daveegray

... after having a couple of cocktails and chatting with some Welsh guys in the hotel bar, we found a nearby restaurant in the train station that sold okonomiyaki. This is a pancake with noodles, pork, vegetables and an egg on top. It was covered with a sauce which was I think soy sauce based, it was delicious and I was pleased we had managed to sample the local delicacy. It was then time for bed, finally a proper one, no more sleeping on the ...

... and the abolishment of nuclear weapons. A volunteer guide spent time with us walking us through the main floor. When he heard about Natalie's paper cranes, he gave her one that he had made as a gift and thank you.

After a wonderful sushi and sashimi lunch (we're being spoiled with the food here), we went to see Hiroshima Castle (a replica, as the original was completely destroyed by the bomb). ...

... of merchants and fisherman for prosperity as he is one of the seven gods of good fortune. There were all sorts of stalls selling all sorts of unrecognisable food and some sort of offering to the gods and hundreds of people queuing at the shrine to be blessed. A real carnival atmosphere. We then strolled along the river, had another look at the A-bomb dome and after a bite to eat retired exhausted once again. Tomorrow Osaka and the adventure is nearing its ...

... building was killed but parts of the building were left standing. It was virtually the only building in the immediate vicinity that did not completely crumble or burn. For many years after the war the shell of the building remained and it was finally decided to turn it into a memorial. It is considered a symbol of Hiroshima, continually reminding the world of the horror of nuclear weapons and appealing for world peace.

We continue walking through Peace Park, which is an area ...

Himeji, Okayama and arrival to Hiroshima

... change for the lockers for my luggage... The Japanese are so willing to help that sometimes they are more of a problem then assistance...
I ran to the park, literally! 15minor so... As I was approaching I could see the castle... It was pretty! The garden was on an island, pretty as well. I kept running... Ok, I did stop for some pictures :)
I was so stressed to get to the garden that I passed in front of the closest gate and didn't see it, I ...

    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!
