“Ask for a room at the top floor, then you don't have the noise of rooms above you. You need to speak Japanese for that, though, as the staff don't speak any English.”

“The 4th floor may have rooms with lake view. If you come by Tobu bus, alight at the stop of lake front (湖畔前), not the last stop.”
