    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!

    ... popular team. Hiroshima is the only city we saw in Japan that we saw selling merchandise everywhere. Even old men are wearing Carp baseball caps! Speaking of old men, it was great to see so many elderly people walking the streets and taking the trains and busses. There are more than 10,000 people in Japan over the age of 100 and I can see why. They eat a diet high in fish and green tea and remain active until late in ...

    ... based stuff - table tennis, billiards, darts, golf, baseball, pin ball, etc. The baseball was quite amazing. You were looking at a picture of a pitcher pitching the ball to you, and then from his hand ( well a hole in the wall where his hand was when he released the ball) a ball would come flying out. You could set the speed for 90km, 100km or 130 km. ( actually we didn't get to work out how to set it but I'm sure the default was 130km.) And the pitches varied. All over ...

    ... the food court is outside the main store and you can eat there without showing a membership card. The pizza slices there are enormous and only 250 yen, a chicken-provolone sandwich is 400 yen, and drinks are 60 yen with free refill. In addition to the bargain meals, Costco is a great resource for tourists who encounter catastrophic luggage failure, lose their glasses, didn't pack enough shirts, etc.

    ... pondered how it was that these very polite, well-meaning, and in many ways charming people came to be in this position. Apart from their aggressive past (samurai, shoguns, wars against China and Russia etc) it must have a lot to do with their respect for the rule of authority and their regimentation which is evident everywhere and everyday; that and the honour system which seems to be enshrined in their lives.
