Stayed 2 nights, booked by travel agent. Not centrally located. Nice park around hotel, good for running.
Worst flaw is the lack of WiFi in room (it is available in the lobby free of charge). Wired Internet in room is very expensive (1000 yen per 24 hours). Room and bathroom reasonably spacious although decor is quite dated. Usual amenities, except for no safe.
The hotel runs a "green cleaning program" that awards the guest 500 yen to spend in the gift shop for agreeing to forgo room cleaning. The problem is that all items in the gift shop are labeled in Japanese only and the staff does not speak English.
