  • Nice gallery that's worth an afternoon. It's also a good place to watch the sunset from.
  • Rooms are very nice. Seems to enjoy Lake Shinji sunset is good, but we couldn't in a matter of hours. In the afternoon sun reflecting off the Lake Shinji, may be hard to see. Morning or evening

  • It's nice and calm scenery of Lake Shinji. I think if it is fine the evening sunset is clearly visible.
