This is our second time going to this hotel, last time was in 2019 and a few things have changed. No longer are you given little plastic bottles of shampoo or individual soap bars. Amenities are downstairs and you can take what you need. Soap, shampoo are in large bottles, so only needs to be replaced as needed. I'm sure there's some cost cutting measures mixed in there, but I personally prefer this as it avoids clutter and cuts down on needless plastic. The hotel is still the same though with friendly staff (they now speak more English), clean and working facilities and very comfy beds. Also the hotel is located just a couple blocks from two major shopping areas for easy pick up of meals, one block away from two major convenient stores, many restaurants around and just a walk up the street to any subway (Tokyo Metro, etc) station. The walk to the JR station is much further, around 10 minutes, but still very doable! I will go definitely go back next year!
