Japan, Hiroshima Guide (B): 36 Hours in Hiroshima

The countryside quickly whizzed past and we pulled in to the station just after lunch time. We were a bit more prepared this time and had bought Obento boxes – a traditional Japanese lunchbox, with a variety of unknown but quite tasty things for about ¥1000 each (approx $12 ish).

We had booked another hotel close to the station and so we just had to work out which was the best station exit to take to get us there. Once again it paid to have a bit of internet data to enable us to use google maps to get us there.

It would be a lovely spot to sit in summer and watch the world go by.

Once again the rooms were quite small, with only enough room to walk around one side of the bed and a small space on the floor for your bags, but that was all we needed and the price was only $120 ish a night which also included a delicious light breakfast. ......
