Dear Guang,

see the following URLs:
	http://www.ietf76.jp/access/#HIJ
	http://www.hij.airport.jp/english/access/now/bus/b01b.php

If you will be arriving at Hiroshima Airport via a domestic flight
from Haneda Airport, the bus will depart in connecting with it.
So the last bus will wait for passengers unless the delay is
significant.

If you will be arriving via an International fligt, the bus
may not change the schedule. When you miss the last bus departure,
there is no nice way to get your hotel.

The possible way except taking a taxi to your hotel is
	- take a taxi to "Shiraichi" JR station; 3,000 -- 3,800 JPY
	  and 20-25min
	- Take JR local train to Hiroshima, 740 JPY
	  The last train departs from Shiraichi station at 23:12,
	  and arrival at Hiroshima is 23:56.
	- Take a taxi again. Probably it costs around 1,000 JPY
	  and 10min.

This is *not* a recommended way especially for foreigners but it is
the last resort except for direct taxi ride.
