A traditional Japanese design with a contemporary spin in the public areas and the reasonably spacious rooms of the Niwa put it well ahead of the usual bland midrangers. We like the rock garden and bamboo grove out front and the shōji (traditional paper screens) across the windows in the rooms.
The central location is also great – close to the JR station but also on a quiet backstreet.
This hotel was selected as one of Top 25 Hotels in Japan by TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice Award 2016.
