This is a nice sized hotel in a great area. Easy walking to the market, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast was buffet style and was mostly traditional Japanese. They also allowed us to take breakfast in the main hotel right next door on the 12th floor, so we had great views of the city. The annex had a vending machine with soda, water and beer which was convenient. The staff did not speak English very well, but there was an English map of the city available. No laundry service available.

Walking on clouds back to the hotel, we wandered through the Omi-Cho Market. It’s like the Pike Place Market, but way better. Fish blood in the gutter, crabs still grasping their last, and sea urchin torched as you wait. Above the market, on the second floor, we grabbed a quick lunch/dinner of excellent soba (Andrew) & udon (Natascha) before jumping on the train for Kyoto.

... original plans and ancient techniques 15 years ago. It was never overrun but seemed to burn down a lot and then be rebuilt. Across the road are the Kenrocken gardens,often described as one of the top 3 in the world. We were fortunate that the plum blossom was just coming out but in 3 weeks time the cherry blossom would be out so no room to move then. After a bowl of noodles for lunch we visited the 21st century ...

We follow a river with yet more hydroelectric dams,the water hurtling towards the sea with all the rain water and snow melt. Suddenly as we exit a tunnel we are down on the coastal plane and no sign of snow. Instead water filled paddies and houses built slightly higher than normal stretch ...
