A few staff members, especially those at the front desk, spoke English very well and were friendly and accommodating. The front desk had a Japanese/English map of the local area with points of interest highlighted. If you need a taxi, the staff will call one for you. We booked a triple room with breakfast included. For breakfast, we had a choice of either Western style or Japanese style and can alternate between the two every day. We chose the Japanese style breakfast almost every day and each meal was slightly different (i.e., different fish/protein and side dishes), but all were satisfying. The lunch/dinner menu had a variety of Japanese, Western, and Chinese dishes. A spoon and fork will be provided if asked. Our room had three single beds, a TV, air conditioning, mini-fridge, and a hot plate for tea. The TV had access to both Japanese and English speaking channels, though not many. If you don't want to use the self-serve laundry, laundry service is available for a fee. All we had to do was fill up the provided laundry bags, give them to the front desk and fill out a small paper with the type/quantity of clothes. By evening of the same day we had clean, ironed clothes. Unless you put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the doorknob, a staff member will come by before noon every day to clean the bathroom, restock provided toiletries, replace towels, and arrange the bedding. The WiFi was fast and available in multiple areas (e.g., booked room, lobby, and restaurant). If you ever need to weigh your luggage, the staff will provide a weigh scale. The general atmosphere felt very calm and safety was never really a concern when walking around the local area. Be prepared for the almost constantly high humidity outside and the occasional rain/thunderstorm if planning to stay during May.
