My wife and I stayed here at the end of a trip to Yagen Valley and Osore-zan and were very impressed. The hotel staff spoke mininal English, but were very friendly and helpful. As far as the rooms went, they were absolutely wonderful: Spacious, clean, and comfortable, although a littled dated. The bathroom was by far the best feature with shower/tub made entirely of cedar and a mirrored glass window with a view of either the bay or the city. I would recommend this hotel to anyore traveling through Mutsu.
