  • Came here while walking along the path of the Sumiyoshi River. In the Rokko mountain range in front of the flow of the river and the Green, negative ions, and the good feelings. The hotel is very quiet and clean. Each one is heavy and rich. Views from the large Windows it feels good. Whats the time very extravagant, able to exhibit even fewer, but not in the everyday world.
