Have stayed here with my wife for three nights: 03rd, 04th and 05th of April. The initial plan was to stay only the 04th and the 05 of April, but some unforseen changes in our planning made us to request accomodation also for the night of 03rd of April. The staff here was very helpful as they were able to accomodate us on the 03rd of April even if we asked them to do this with only one day in advance.
The room: quite small, but nice. Half traditional accomodation, as there were no paper walls, only the tatami on the floor. We slept in the Japanese way in Japanese pajamas, which was nice. The air conditioner worked fine, we could heat the ir in the room by using it.
The breakfast: being in Japan, we choosed the Japanese style. We haven't traveled 10.000 km to eat Western food in Japan ;-). Good and fresh food containing rice, fish, chicken, soy sauce, fresh sliced fruits, etc.
The staff: actually, there is only one lady which takes care of the facility. She barely speaks english (10-15 words, maybe), but we could understand also thanks to the Japanese words which my wife knew and also thanks to the mimics.
The atmosphere is nice and we really liked the Tea Ceremony which the lady of the house arranged for us. It costs 1500 JPY, but it worth the money, it is quite nice. Those money are to be paid to the person which hosts the ceremony, not to the lady at the ryokan.
All in all, we have enjoyed our stay at this ryokan. If we will come to Hiroshima again, for sure we will stay here.
