This is a brand new hotel that opened up a little over a year ago right next to the Kamaishi train station. On the other side is the Kamaishi fish market (called Sunfish) and souvenir market (Sea Plaza). There is also a rental car lot in front of the train station and a Lawson's convenience store a few yards away. Beyond the Sunfish market is a Maiya Supermarket, drugstore (more like Walgreens, but apparently doesn't dispense prescription drugs), K's Denki (like a Best Buy for electronic goods). Behind Ki's Denki is the post office, so lots of conveniences in the hotel's surrounding areas. The location looks industrial, but it is about a 2 minute walk to the town's center (other side of the Kasshi river). The rooms were fairly spacious, considering this is Japan. The double twin we stayed in might be like a room in a Motel 6 in the US (but a lot cleaner and nicer). The room had an empty mini fridge, hot pot, complimentary tea, small area to hang clothes, but no closet, minimal drawer space (a small desk drawer and a small cupboard like space under the luggage rest). WiFi was good, although you have to keep signing in each time you turn on your computer/device (or I had to). Service was excellent, but there seemed to be only one English speaker amongst the staff who was only there during certain (peak?) hours. Most of the clientele are Japanese citizens, few foreigners. The breakfast buffet was nice, and offered many local seafoods such as mekabu (seaweed), shirasu (tiny white fish) and soba noodles, as well as some Western foods such as scrambled eggs, pastries, salad, potatoes. The menu items changed slightly each day. It wasn't the best breakfast buffet I'd ever had in Japan, but it was filling, freshly made and a great start to my day! The lobby area is spacious, and is adjacent to the restaurant, which seems to serve lunch and dinner, too. There are a few coin laundry facilities on the 3rd and 5th floors (tip: soap is already provided in the machines, but the dryer isn't very efficient and I needed to run the separate dryer cycle two times to get my cotton t shirts dry). There is brand spanking new bath on the top floor (often translated 'public bath', osento are communal bath areas for use by guests and not the general public!). There are indoor and outdoor baths. The outdoor bath has a lovely mini bamboo garden. I have stayed at several hotels in Kamaishi, and this is probably the town's best.
