All the employees were smiling and polite, which warmed my heart. The matcha and tea sweets at check-in were also delicious. The biggest attraction was the feast that used plenty of Nara’s local cuisine, and I was satisfied with the timely serving. The large public bath and open-air bath healed the fatigue of the trip.
