The location of the hotel is close to one of the main streets in Hirara with loads of restaurants. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is super friendly and did their best to communicate with us even though they spoke little english. The breakfast is ok for people from northern Europe with bread and yogurt, although it is even better if you enjoy eating Japanese food as breakfast. My only complain is the extremely hard beds that make it somewhat difficult to sleep. But after two days we got used to it.
