... floor and made it to the room...and I know the pictures do not do it justice here because the room was a little slice of history all on its own. Tatami mats covered the floor and the wooden doors that slid open to reveal our private balcony were classic. I could almost imagine myself in ancient Japan! Putting our bags down in an available corner was about all we could manage before being tempted out onto the balcony to admire the view. ...

They don't connect major population centres and, especially along the west coast, don't attract as many visitors. I could easily spend a few days here exploring the ...
