Great location but hard to find reception

"Close to the shopping strip and ina great location. Only trouble we had was locating where the reception was. Turns out it was on the 8th floor and accessed by the lifts in a alley. Other than that enjoyed the stay and shopping."…"

We didn’t have a car and limited time, so we walked to the nearby dairy farm and looked at the local homes. You could see beautiful hills and a larger city in the distance. Before departing Shikoku, we’d like to make time to see more.

Spend some time here. We went to the Dogo Onsen. It was said to be the inspiration for some Miyazaki’ Spirited Away. I would encourage you to experience this 3000 year old bath house.
