    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!

The following day I'd planned a visit to nearby island of Miyajima, although quite touristy it sounded like a good day out, so the following morning and a combination of tram and train I made it to the ferry and crossed to Miyajima in bright blue skies :) on recommendations I'd decided on a hike to the top of Mount Misen so set off up the rocky path that started quite easy going before getting quite steep in places, it proved to ...

    Yesterday saw us take the tram to the end of the terminal and then hop on a ferry on our way to Mijajima, a small island in the Seto inland sea. The ferry trip is only about ten minutes.
    The most famous attraction on Miyajima is the shrine of Itsukushima-jinga, where the vermillion coloured O-torii Gate rises out of the water and seems to float on the sea. It was first built in 593 but has gone through a few remodels since then.

    ... this had on the victims. It is very unlucky that on that morning many of the local girls were taken out of school to work on fire breaks in the city and so were outside when the bomb fell resulting in many deaths and some terrible burns. We spent quite some time at this important memorial to the horrors of war and I thought that it was a dignified and powerful display. It has been a very busy few days which have been quite frenetic. We were all feeling quite ...

Usually, I have my feet hanging off and occasionally I may fall off. I tell you this because when I am on the road, I do the same thing of course. Well, the other night just after 2:00 am, I experienced an earthquake, a 6.3 ...

    ... the bomb and got a closer look at the A-Dome itself. We then headed a few blocks away to the Shima Hospital which was the actual center of the blast, and found the small understated memorial plaque showing what the area looked like before the bomb. Our final stop in the park was to look at the Chinese Parasol Tree which is a noted A-bomb survivor. Despite being scorched in the blast, new leaves started to bud and develop shortly after the blast and it served ...
