Very Good 8.0
Very friendly host
We have been in Japan in winter. Japanese houses don't have heating isolation so in the room was very cold. We understood japanese are used with cold temperatures and will not feel the cold but we Europeans are more sensitive. Host made all the efforts to be warm in the room and we thank him for that. Great place to stay and host very kind.
