So we changed the train in Nagoya, with 14 minutes to transfer to the next train. By now we felt pretty comfortable with the train system and didn't feel stressed with that amount of time to change the train.
The Nozomi had a long pointed streamlined nose, and actually a tail just like it too. I think because they never reall turn the train around, they just turn the seats to face the direction it's going and off it goes.
We got to Hiroshima after dark at 6:38pm (you can see the times on the ticket in the photo), and took a taxi to our hotel. There were no 5 star hotels in Hiroshima, and this one had a nice lobby and all, but the interior of the room was certainly nothing fancy, just functional. The price for 2 nights was cheaper than one night at the ryokan in Takayama, but it did not include any meals.
We went out to look for dinner, and found it right next door to the hotel at a nice Vitnamese restaurant.
