Our Room

I forgot to take pictures of our room when we first arrived, so the ones below were taken on our last day before checking out. Our room (and bathroom) was pretty typical for a standard Japanese room – small, clean, and efficient. The toilet was inside the bathroom instead of a separate room (like in some hotels).
