Staff are very friendly, we felt like VIP guests, they bent over backwards to accommodate us. Food was amazing, very authentic Japanese cuisine. Rooms were spacious and very clean, we would definitely come back here and recommend this hotel to anyone! 5 stars!

We take a walk around the area and find a supermarket to get some breakfast supplies.
What a great nights sleep in a real bed. We both slept really well and the noise from the trains did not bother us at all. Opening the blinds reveals a magnificent day with nothing but blue sky and ...
