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.

We took the train to Shinano Omachi, then bus to Ogizawa and scrambled over Mt kurobedairi and Mt Tateyama, arrived in Toyama that night Amazing mountains and autumn leaves. Had Japanese tempura set meal for lunch - ok but too many vegetables, not enough prawns. Worse pasta ever for dinner. But we found Tim Tams, Nutella and bread sticks in a ...
Today, we checked out the old part of Kanazawa. But not before we went shoe shopping for mister Wiremu (Willem in Japanese). And we can tell you that in a country were people have more my (Julia ;)) size, it is challenging to find shoes in size 45 (or 28 in Japanese). But we managed. We ended up buying some French (yeah really, no joke) shoes but made in Japan ;) Today we were ready for some old houses and ancient ...
... waiter showed us the way to another restaurant further down the street that also made sushi and sashimi. We stayed there all night and enjoyed some really great food at the bar: squid sushi, grilled eel, tempura mushroom, grilled eggplant, oysters, tuna sashimi, .... And sake in cute little glasses. The menu was only in Japanese so we just showed the chef the ingredient we wanted and told him to work his magic and that worked out quite well ...
