We had 5 futons side by side and there was space for 2 little tables in the room. The room was clean. Buffet dinner was great, even had a small selection of vegetables and pork for shabu shabu....

Its about a 8-10 mins drive. We drove so there was no problem with getting in and out, otherwise you might... More
