The ultimate time warp
The hotel was disappointing on almost every count. It needs to be totally renovated. Staff were very pleasant.

Oldest western style hotel of Japan .
Okd style beautiful rooms. Spacious. Exellent Omelette and Toast with marmelade. Bar with wide choice of whiskey.
After some hectic days in Japanese Cities most relaxing. Just walk to the temples in minutes. Comfortable bus to the Kegon waterfall. Notice that the Emperor Villa is closed on Tuesdays. Reception was very welcoming.
