Reviewed September 29, 2012

The first not so good impression was the behavior of the reception staff. Unlike the normal courteous Japanese, she did not greet when we tried to check in. We arrived before the check in time and she just hand back the check in paper to us and said "check in time is 2 p.m".

Next, comes to the room. For a traditional Japanese small room, do not expect it to be nice as what is appears from the website. Pretty old and run down but most of the amenities are usable. For the price you are paying for, price is decent (5400 yen per night) but dont expect it to be luxurious. The public bath is clean and not so crowded with people. However the walk to the nearest train station may take up about 20 mins walking. Luckily we were able to get a morning shuttle from the hotel to send us to the train station, this however needs to book in advance.
