I booked my room well in advance and paid approximately $250 / night for 5 nights throughout the event. This included breakfast and dinner in a large buffet styled cafeteria. During my stay I found a review of this hotel describing it as a very bad Butlins camp and unfortunately I have to agree. I was actually quite excited to stay in the region as the scenery is spectacular in the area and the hotel was apparently well known fro their pool spa. I don't have a problem staying in a one or two star hotel as long as the price reflects this. Japan is expensive but I stayed in a Hilton in downtown Tokyo for the same price (minus breakfast and dinner). Reception was small and understaffed for the amount of people arriving. There was obviously going to be a language barrier which I accept and take as part of the charm of traveling. This was not my first trip to Japan and overall i find Japenese people to be extremely courteous and caring about other people and it is the politest country I have ever visited. My room was in a wing next to a building site where the hotel is obviously renovating (desperately needed). I stayed in a western twin room. Everything in the room was functional however it was dated (probably 20-30 years e.g. analogue turn dial phone). The room was also very dirty (e.g. I pulled away the table from the wall and found severe dust caking of the carpet and wall - I took a picture!).
