My friend and I were wow'd when we were shown our room. It was everything we expected of an authentic Japanese accommodation experience. The room was beautifully laid out. Immaculately clean. The toilet was the most advanced smart toilet I've seen throughout my travels of China, Seoul and Japan. The bathroom, which we didn't use because we made use of the public baths, looked really nice with a bath tub and shower.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful and conversational in English. They showed us to our room and gave a guided tour of the room itself.
There is excellent wifi in the rooms.
The hotel has a curfew of midnight.
We did not sample any meals from the hotel during our stay so I can not comment on this.
