Tokyo Daiichi Hotel Tsuruoka

Hotel in Tsuruoka

This is a large, fairly impersonal hotel with comparatively spacious, stylish rooms and a rooftop sauna and rotemburo (outdoor bath), perfect for a post-hike soak. It's the huge yellow-brick building connected to the S-Mall shopping centre, a few minutes' walk from the train station (turn right as you exit the station).
