We stayed in the Japanese Style Room and we were very pleased it! The bed was comfortable and they had a nice heater that warms up the room pretty fast. There was also a small sitting area with sofa and a table. The toilet and bath was spacious (in Japanese terms) and clean, all basic toiletries were provided for. There...

The place was clean and spacious. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. we did not take up the breakfast package because we thought we could do better than the bread and jam outside. The toilet can certainly do with a bidet system, which we thought was a standard feature, even in some public toilets we encounter in Tokyo. Pardon...
