In November of this past year, my wife and I stayed at this hotel for my Japanese friends wedding. The wedding and reception actually took place in this hotel and it was great! It was our first time visiting an Asian country and we fell in love. The people were so nice and were forgiving of out terrible attempts to speak Japanese. While there we walked around and explored on our own. The only thing we were upset about was the shopping. The hotel is surrounded by three malls, but the malls were very Americanized. Unfortunately, to buy Japanese items, you need to visit tourist attractions.
Anyway, everything was so clean and convenient. We hopped on the train and went to Kamakura (which I highly recommend)! We also visited China town in Yokohama and we went to Tokyo (and of course had to stop by the Hooters there). It was very nice to actually know people to show us around. We would have had no idea how to get anywhere without them.
My tip to anyone who plans to go, definitely plan to visit other areas. It is really not that hard if it is your first time. We found that when we were left to fend for ourselves, it got rather boring just visiting the stores around the hotel. Definitely visit "Cosmo World". Cosmo World is the amusement park with the ferris wheel. They have other rides, a couple of Japanese haunted houses, and mirror maze (this was a lot of fun). Great place to visit and I am sure that we will go back one day.
