Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What’s the difference between a twin room and a double room?
Twin room: has two single futon beds (width of a single futon is 1.0 m)

Double room: has a double futon bed (width of a double futon is 1.4m)

Deluxe twin room: both the size and atmosphere of this room type make it the most popular room with foreign guests. This room type is recommended for couples as the single futon beds can readily be placed together to form one large futon bed.
