The Crest Hotel is located a short 1 1/2 blocks from the Takahagi train & taxi station. Takahagi is not a usual tourist destination but the area is a hidden gem nestled between the sea and mountains.
The hotel lobby did not give us a very good first impression - very smokey and sparse. Fortunately our non-smoking room was smoke free, simple and clean. The hotel offers daily dry cleaning in by 10:30 a.m. - back by 6 p.m. If no one is at the front desk you do have to figure out how to use the desk phone to ring someone!
Hotel is by May Kiss a small but nice restaurant with curry, steak and other options. There is a cute boutique shop where you can buy local handmade cloth bags and other articles at very reasonable prices. It is a short walk to another store closer to the station called The Zoo - small but many gift products and very friendly owners.
From the hotel a short drive takes you into the mountains and scenes you see on postcards. Exploring the "inaka" (countryside) north of Tokyo reveals the everyday life of the Japanese people.
