super location, sit right by the magical Shirakawa river. There is no services/reception counter at Shikinean hotel, everything is automatic, you receive the main door pass code before check in, also entry code for 3 different bedrooms. all went neat and easy.
3 rooms on each floor are of different design and display of arts. beds are comfy, we slept well every night.
nearby the hotel are endless restaurant choices, subway station is less then 10 mins away and there is a small local shopping street if you walk along the Shirakawa to Higashiyama.
everything is wonderful here.
will certainly come back again.
