Kumamoto Castle is a popular destination for those going to Kumamoto in the Kyushu region. &and COMFY HOTEL Kumamotojo View is in a prime location to admire the castle.

Message from &and COMFY HOTEL Kumamotojo View

"We offer a breathtaking view of Kumamoto Castle from our rooftop terrace. Guests can enjoy a resort experience on one of the sofas as they look out at the castle being rebuilt after enduring the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake.

The terrace is open until 22:00. Guests can bring drinks and snacks out to enjoy while the castle is lit up.

Since we are located on higher ground slightly away from the city, our hotel is also ideal for stargazing!"

karaksa hotel

karaksa hotel provides accommodations across Japan, from Tokyo and Osaka to Kyoto and Hokkaido. Their English-speaking staff and their video call service with professional interpreters are some of the reasons why the hotel is beloved by overseas visitors.

Today we will cover two specific hotels from the karaksa hotel group.

2. karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza

Our first pick is karaksa hotel premier Tokyo Ginza, near Tokyo's quintessential shopping district, Ginza. In addition to the shopping facilities, the hotel is easily accessible to and from Kabukiza Theatre, the Imperial Palace, and Hamarikyu Gardens.

The closest train station, Shimbashi Station, is only six minutes by foot. It is a great central location for exploring downtown Tokyo.

"Staying true to our concept of 'share precious moments with your loved ones,' our rooms are majority twin rooms with 26㎡ - 43㎡ of spacious flooring. Our rooms are installed with large windows overlooking the streets of Ginza. We also have a lounge free for all our guests to use (*)."

*As of July 2020, the lounge is closed. The buffet is operating with fewer dishes, and guests are required to take food up to their rooms to eat.

The second accommodation is karaksa hotel grande Shin-Osaka Tower. It is only five minutes away from JR Shin-Osaka Station, where you can arrive via the Tokaido Shinkansen. The hotel's location is ideal for exploring Osaka Prefecture, as well as its neighbors Kyoto and Nara. If you take the shinkansen (bullet train), you can also easily travel out to Kanazawa and Hiroshima.

Message from karaksa hotel grande Shin-Osaka Tower

"Our hotel tower consists of 24 floors. Rooms on the High Floors (above the 15th floor) and the Panorama Floors (above the 22nd) have breathtakingly stunning views of the cityscape. Guests can relax in our spacious communal baths. The men's bath includes a dry sauna, and the women's bath includes a steam sauna (*)."

*As of July 2020, both saunas are closed. The baths are open between 15:00 - 25:00.

"Our top recommendation is the Panoramic Grande Room with Tatami. If you lay down a futon bed on the tatami floor, the room can accommodate up to four guests. From the large window in the bathroom, you can admire the view of Osaka as you relax.

With a mix of Japanese and Western elements, this special room is ideal for families and groups. We also think this room is great for overseas visitors who want a taste of Japanese culture."
