The hotel was very quiet, and I was quite lucky to be the only one on that floor.
... is a Japanese BBQ various cuts of raw meat are bought to the table and you then cook it yourself on the charcoal grill in the middle of the table. They have a wide variety of delicious sauces that you toss the meat in after it's cooked. Pair this with icy cold glasses of Kirin and you have 2 hours of sheer bliss!
