The apartment is spacious, has large windows and a very comfortable bath. The sofa is comfortable both for sitting and for the third person to sleep. The view is brilliant. The shouting from the petrol station across the street was odd at first, but kept us well amused during our stay. The fire station further down Uehonmachi street leads to quite a few rescue and fire vehicles moving past the apartment with sirens on at night, but if you get used to it that’s no problem. The neighborhood is very pleasant, especially the small park one block west and Carlton Tea house which, apart from tea, serves excellent coffee!
