From Hiroshima Bus Center to Your Hotel(Note!!)
On Foot
Please mark your hotel in Google Map and use navigation to find a direction.
The Bus Center is here.
By Taxi
The biggest problem is that there is no taxi stand in the Bus Center. It is difficult to use city buses or street cars for first-time visitors from foreign countries. If you ask someone how to reach your hotel, they may not understand English. Then, you will face a trouble.
If you need a taxi, you should use the taxi stand of RIHGA Royal Hotel Hiroshima near the Bus Station.
RIHGA Royal Hotel Hiroshima is here.
You do not have to pay tips at any places / occasions in Japan.
If you try to pay, they may feel strange or try to refuse.
They are thinking that their service is not for money.
