    HIROSHIMA INTERNATIONAL YOUTH HOUSE/"HOTEL"!

    by

    Excellent location close to the Peace Memorial Museum & Park and the Atomic Bomb Dome.
    Fees for foreigners: 3620yen/single room. 3130 yen/double room. You must show your passport to get the discount.
    No travellers checks or credit cards accepted. Japanese yen only.

    Unique Quality: The rooms are like hotel-style rooms. Very nice, very clean! You have your own bathroom and cable tv (English CNN is shown!). You are given to yukata (Japanese cotton robe) & slippers to wear around the room. They have Japanese and western style rooms. We stayed in the western style rooms as we wanted to sleep on a bed (beds are twin size). Meals are not included, but you can choose to have breakfast or dinner at the hotel if you want for an extra charge (prices vary).
    This is a 10 story bldg and we stayed on the 8th floor if I remember correctly. The view of Hiroshima city from my room was amazing!

    Directions: Located about a 5 min walk to the PEACE MEMORIAL PARK.

Aster Plaza International Youth House

by tqlu0911

Is there internet booking for this Youth House?

RE: Aster Plaza International Youth House

by Bilimari

It looks like they only take reservations via phone/fax.

I remember visiting a site that had internet booking for this place, but that was about 3 yrs ago or so.

My friend & I stayed there. LOVED it. We didn't book beforehand and got two separate rooms when we arrived there. If you are going during a busy season you should call them to reserve a room, just in case.

Enjoy your stay in Hiroshima! :)

thanks ciaran powell

budget accomodation

by heywinks

You can stay at Astor Plaza. It's an international guesthouse. Check out my Hiroshima pages for information :). I stayed there & LOVED it!! It's within walking distance to the main attractions, or you can take the street tram.

Hi - Is it possible to book a room at Aster Plaza online? Or is by telephone the only way?

Thanks!

RE: RE: places to stay

by heywinks

I didn't book in advance and was a walk-in. If they have email, you might want to email them. I'm not sure what their occupancy rate is, but if want to book it online that would be ok...then you'd know for sure that you had a place to stay. From Hiroshima Station, you can take the tram to Astor Plaza.

1 Day only in Hiroshima in March, 2006

by gaizee

What are the must do's and must see's in Hiroshima?

RE: 1 Day only in Hiroshima in March, 2006

by AyurinHiro

Welcome to Japan!

In Hiroshima, I like Miyajima Island.
http://www.miyajima.or.jp/miyakan2/index.html

You can reach there by train and ferry.
The island is very very near the mainland.
So it is very easy to get on the ferry.
(You don't need reservation. Just get on the ferry in front of you)

This island is famous for "Itsukushima Jinja" shrine. (Shintoism)
It has a huge red arch in the ocean.

I visited there about 2 years ago.
After that, I heard that a typhoon hit the island... and damaged some part.
I hope they have recovered.

Hope this helps :-)

Thank you for taking the time to suggest a place to visit. My husband and I are tavelling on a cruise ship which will be stopping at the following places including Hiroshima, Kyoto (Kobe), Okinawa amd then Ishigaki (Sakishima Islands). If you have any suggestions of places we must see it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you again Gai

Hiroshima

by heywinks

Definitely go to the Peace Memorial and the Peace Museum. Very moving and informative.

Also visit the Hiroshima Botanical Garden.

Ayurin's suggestion of Miyajima is right on! You need to take the ferry there and it's a close train ride to the ferry from downtown Hiroshima. Miyajima is beautiful and home to Itsukushima Shrine (on many of the postcards you find of scenes from Japan). There are many deer on the island as well. There are vendors selling food for the deer that you can purchase so you can feed them. Be careful as they can get a bit aggressive. If you like hiking, there are some trails on the island as well.

Have a fun trip to Hiroshima! You can stay at Astor Plaza, cheap for foreigners. Check out my Hiroshima page for more information.

Hi,

If you are on the cuise ship, you may not have enough time to go to Miyajima and back... I hope you can make it there!

In Hiroshima, visit the Peace park, Syukukeien Garden, and Hiroshima castle. Walk around the shopping street in Namiki-cho and Hacchobori area. Step inside any of the Pachinko shops to see how Japanese gamble! Try some Okonomiyaki, which is the famous Hiroshima dish.

Have fun in Japan!!

Hi - Great info on Aster Plaza. I'll be there in April of '06. Do you know of any way to book a room there online? Or is calling the only way? Thanks!

RE: RE: 1 Day only in Hiroshima in March, 2006

by salisbury3933

If it's 1 day only, I'd suggest the peace park and Miyajima. Hopefully you'll have enough time to squeeze them both in.

Travel Tips for Hiroshima

Otorii, Miyajima

by lowailing138

Most photographed torii in Japan, appears to be floating in the sea, less impressive when low tide.
accessible by streetcar and JR line from Hiroshima sta.30 mins, walk from station to ferry port 10 min. cross-over by ferryboat 30 min . JR rail pass holder be sure to use the JR ferry

Taishakyo Gorge

by GenkiMac

Gorgeous scenery is the only reason for coming here unless you are into monkeys which I haven't seen but supposedly there are many.
This is fairly touristy at the main entrance and you can take boat trips along the gorge too. The middle height of Autumn would be the only time you would encounter big crowds but it will also be beautiful at this time.
A feature of this gorge is the natural bridge which has been carved away by the river over the years and holds the title of being the largest natural bridge in the --- (I can't quite remember but it's pretty impressive!)

Hiroshima

by leplaya

Hiroshima is a city that is more than just a WWII historical site. The atomic bomb Peace Park is a moving site, but there is much more in this city. It has many sites that predate WWII, such as the castle and a few kilometers away, Miyajima. It was rebuilt at an amazing rate after the atomic bomb and has all the amenities of a large, modern city. This includes a lively nightlife and sports (the baseball stadium is just to the north of Peace Park).
A great tram system allows to explore all the important parts of the city.
