It was used for the first time, but the room was beautiful and the view from the bath was good and it was very wonderful. It was delicious enough to eat dinner too. Also, if you have a chance to go to Nagano, I would like to use it. Thank you very much.

Room & room & large public bath everywhere was very beautiful. Should I reduce the dinner a little more than I can afford? I thought so. However, it was a pity that only the grilled fish had been set on the table from the beginning so it was cold. We also enjoyed the wine set of 4 cups set at reasonable prices. The breakfast was delicious, the rice of Nozawana that my mother held.
