Booked one night for my wife, daughter and daughter's friend during Golden Week. We chose a Western-style room with four beds instead of the Japanese-style room with tatami mats and futons. First room (corner #816) smelled of stale cigarette smoke, so we asked to change and front desk was very accommodating and moved us to #716 which smelled very fresh. It's too bad this hotel doesn't have non-smoking floors.

We changed into robes and headed for the rotemburo, or outdoor bath. The wooden outdoor bath is made of hinoki, or cypress. There was quite a bit of algae growth on the wooden slats in the bath, which shows that they haven't scrubbed it in a while. A bit of a turn-off.

Dinner on the 3rd floor restaurant was not spectacular, but decent volume. Fresh fish was the only thing that was nice.

I could feel the coils on my bed mattress. Could have used a thicker mattress pad.

Next morning's breakfast seemed like a repeat of dinner.

After checking in, we walked to nearby shops and restaurant , had wagiu beef grilled for dinner. We had problem with GPS because we do not understand Japanese and the GPS instruction is not user-friendly. The staff despite being busy behind the counter spent 5 minutes or so with it , it worked well since then, in English. Next morning I walked along the street to the pillow/doona shop at 8am and bought three japanese pillows to bring home. I found it good for my neck, the other two are for my family. More
