Nice, traditional Japanese breakfast. The all-day free hot dashi (broth) drink was a great touch! We always grabbed a mug when returning. Convenient location for work or sightseeing. Tons of good local restaurants in the immediate vicinity (although many are popular so reservations may be necessary).
