The views from the room's terraces are absolutely fantastic! Just like everywhere in Japan (and not only when it comes to hotels!) the service is almost obsessively polite and kind. Very few people in the staff can speak even a bit of English, but their...More

I don't think they have rooms with hot tub in the balcony. They only have a public hot tub both inside n outside on 4th floor. You may confirm on the website.
