First trip to Japan and everyone of my travel mates were cautious about the idea of staying in one of Japan's infamous "Love Hotels". Well, after a horrifying stay in a guest house in Kyoto (Courtesy of AirBNB), which we were all in agreement had to have been haunted, we became much more open to the idea of staying at Fine Garden Toyonaka.
Well after arriving, the staff knew enough English to get us quickly checked in and decide what we wanted for breakfast.
The after taking the elevator up,flashing lights guide you to the direction of the room while cheesy romantic music played in the background. Upon entering the room, being sure to remove your shoes after entering the door of course, we found the room to be actually rather pleasant. A nice big screen in front of the bed which can easily be switched over to a projector screen with a push of a button (all lights, music and movies can be controlled with a remote). The massage chair was fairly comfortable... ignoring the "massage wand" behind the bed. they had a complimentary snack and water in the fridge. (Beware of the capsule mini-fridge... curious hands may want to press the buttons... especially an empty slot marked with the most expensive item.)
Finally, the bathroom, lots of complimentary personal care items provided, and a nice shower area with hot tub and a little TV to watch while relaxing.
