    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!

We arrived in Hiroshima early evening, still raining. The main way to get around here is by tram. We were going to stay in a love hotel as we were arriving late and had looked up areas they were in so we got a tram to there. We walked for ages in the rain and we couldn't find any or even any other accommodation. We were getting ...

We also visited the Kiezu-no-Reikado Hall (The Eternal Flame) in which a sacred fire, said to be originally lit by the Daishi, has burnt for over 1200 years. This flame was used to light the eternal flame at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.
    When we were in the Reikado Hall, a number of Japanese women and girls were drinking from the big, black iron pot of water which hangs over the ...

    ... is a statue of a child holding a huge origami crane (or dove). But my eyes soon wandered over to the remembrance monument itself. Set inside a man-made pond is a marble stone island with a huge gas torch burning. At the other end of the pond was an arch with a memorial stone and altar so people can pray and remember. But behind this monument was the Peace time museum.

    I entered the museum and paid the modest Y50 entrance fee and made my way upstairs. The first thing I ...

Immediately behind the gate on the island is the Itsukushima Shrine. The gate and the shrine with the island in the background is one of the most photographed scenes in Japan. When you walk on the island, you are likely to be greeted at ...
