                                                    Big rooms for a Japanese hotel for a decent price. Quiet in spite of the nearby busy railway.

                                                    For these Americans, the bed was too hard and difficult to sleep on.

                                                    the inside of bulding were old, no light for closet, very bad internet connection... our impression of this hotel was not modern.
