Convenient location to most things
Posted Aug 23, 2015
It was my first time in Hiroshima, and I'm glad I picked the Rihga. It was simple to find from the Hiroshima station (arrived via Shinkansen) via bus. You could also reach the hotel via local subway.
The hotel itself is situated along many bus routes that traverse the town. As I was there only for one day, it was convenient to access the shopping area due East as well as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. Further, it is only a 5-10 minute walk to Hiroshima castle. Accessing Miyajima (the island south) was the furthest, traversing via bus and local subway.
If your goal is to visit Miyajima/Ikutsushima shrine and stay for the entire day at the island, perhaps this is not the hotel for you. However for everything else --access to the peace memorial and museum, Hiroshima castle, to food/shopping district, and quick 10-15 minute bus ride to Hiroshima station.
