The dinner was very satisfying with sashimi tempura meat. The hot spring is also small, but I was able to find myself among the hot water I had ever used, so I could feel smooth and heal my daily fatigue. However, as soon as I turned off the lights at night I was worried about the sound of insects flying in the room. As for breakfast, I felt something was lacking just because dinner was delicious.
