This hotel is located a stone's throw away from Otsu station, which was good because they are connected directly through the south exit. However was extremely disappointed with the room condition. Peeling wallpaper, dirty carpet with stains, and worse, a spider came crawling on the wall at night. I managed to capture the spider with a ziplock bag and took it to the front desk. No apology or offer to change room. Will not stay here again.

2 children dead, many injured after car hits Shiga Pref. day care group
Conveniently located just nine minutes from Kyoto Station by train, many tourists from both Japan and around the world visit the city. I lived in Otsu through high school, went to Hokkaido for university, and then worked as a lawyer at a law firm in Tokyo after graduating. Later I studied overseas in the U. Looking out the window of the bus on the way from my house to the train station, I could see cherry blossoms in spring and colorful leaves in the fall by the river and Lake Biwa, giving a sense of the seasons passing. I think that my experience during junior high school is what made me want to become mayor. There was still no nursing insurance system at the time, so my mother quit her job and took care of my grandmother at home for the next ten years. In the end, my work as a lawyer was very fulfilling, and at some point my dream of becoming mayor was pushed to the back of my mind.
