Like everything in Japan, hotels are expensive and this one seemed even more so. That said, it was beautiful and the staff was great. We ate once there and the food was quite good...coffee was $8.20 for a small, non-refillable cup. They have a very good gift shop there with many items for making origami and other traditional crafts. I enjoyed browsing there as much as outside the hotel. The only complaint I'd have about the hotel was the beds....very hard for my liking. Might as well have been on the floor but I think that's traditional. Anyway, very nice hotel in a good location very close to the train station.
