My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Sunroute Patio and really enjoyed our stay. The price was reasonable and the room very comfortable. It’s in central Goshogawara and would be great if you’re visiting the area, especially during the Tachinebuta festival in early August. They have a wonderful and friendly staff member who speaks English well and is happy to help with any hotel needs or provide advice on places to visit. The staff is all very accommodating and wants to ensure you have a great visit. The breakfast is also quite good and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this hotel!
