Certificate of Excellence
《 A place where you can find happiness during your trip 》 HOKUTOSEI, a limited express sleeping car train that traveled from/to Ueno in Tokyo to/fro Sapporo in Hokkaido, was loved by many people but disappeared due to the discontinuation of the service. We have revived the train as a hostel with a lot of help, and we will follow in HOKUTOSEI's footsteps and support your trip for Eastern Japan.

Ginza, Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.

Super nice staff, they have a smoking area (which is rare in Japan nowadays), super clean rooms, welcoming common area. The theme is something out of the ordinary! Would highly recommend to single travelers as well as families.
