The hotel generally has a pick-up and drop-off, but only near a cafe (counting the first entrance), and then a walk of about 20 minutes to the entrance. There is only one hotel near the public park, well-known hotel accounting, near only for pedestrian seating, steam is possible road. After the left hotel, you'll be at the entrance, and then you'll be on the stairs. Unfortunately, April may have warmed up, and the dragonfly is basically soaked.
