Our first experience of Japan- it was a baptism of fire! Sleeping on tatami mats, bento boxes of sushi and sashimi for breakfast as well as dinner, a lot of green tea and almost no coffee! The staff were kind, although we did struggle to communicate! Google translate was fab! Well worth downloading the app before you leave.
The rooms were comfortable. Air conditioning didn’t work so well, some did smell bad as they are often smoked in. Good idea to request non smoking rooms
Try the traditional Japanese onsen they have there. It’s fun, with a lovely view- if a little of a culture shock...... all will be revealed if you go;)
Don’t expect coffee, western food of any description, any deviation from the menu plan, no gym. There are also no local shops-
do expect real Japanese hotel experience, kind and respectful staff, beautiful view of the coast/ Tsugaru strait, reasonable prices.
