Richmond hotel is a chain hotel throughout Japan in the mid range price. Usually very similar but some of them are better than others. In my view, this Richmond is not so convenient unless you have a car yourself. 15 min walk from the train station. Building is also a bit oldish and the service was, in my opinion, not as good as other Richmond hotels (maybe they were just new staff). The good point was their breakfast buffet. Good range of food and everything was tasty. Some local dishes were very nice. I saw many people with many food on their plates (because everything was tasty). Very spacious dining area was also plus.
