    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 saw the skin and nails of a boy whose mother pulled them from his flesh as they were falling off so that his father could see them. We saw the uniforms of school children, bloody, battered and torn. We saw lunch boxes still intact with the lunch burned to ashes inside. We saw pictures of the deformities caused by the radiation, babies born with one eye, nails that were inches long on two fingers while the rest were normal, teeth that ...

    ... city's tragic past, it certainly evokes an emotional response.

    Approximately 140,000 people were killed by the end of 1945, with roughly half of those deaths occuring on the day of the bombing. 15-20% died from injuries or the combined effects of flash burns, trauma and radiation burns, compounded by illness, malnutrition and radiation sickness.

    We visited the Memorial Cenotaph, which is located at the center of the Peace Memorial Park. This concrete ...

    Today there are people bringing flowers to the memorial. Many groups of school children are on tour of the Park today as well as Japanese groups with Japanese guides. I cannot understand what the guides are telling their groups. It would be interesting to hear the Japanese version of this part of history.

    ... As with many of these types of museums - so sad - and yet an education for us all.....maybe if people see the awful outcome of such cruelty we will learn something......and it might stop such cruelty from happening?????? Maybe they should round up all of the world leaders and G20 members and world bank officials and walk them through that museum...., or thru the war museum in Ho Chi Minh City or to Auschwitz or Ground Zero in New York...... A bit simplistic and naive I ...
