Moment of Joy
The landmark for Hiroshima Guesthouse SimpleStay is a giant Gundam figurine that can be seen at the entrance. Its costume changes with the seasons to entertain guests. From the veranda in the rental bath (reservations required on the day of use), one is treated to a panoramic view of the island of Miyajima. In addition, besides restaurants and banks, there is also a hospital with English check-ups available in the immediate area, so guests can relax knowing they are safe in those what-if situations.
