2018年日本🇯🇵広島。 「石亭」。 古いですが良いお宿です。 ライブラリーを日本の旅館に広めたはしりのお宿ですね。 パリジェンヌJKは、お母様が学生の頃に京大に留学して数年日本に住んでいた方なので、お箸の使い方も上げ下げも左手で一度受けてから…としっかり躾られてきたので、仲居さんがびっくりしてました👏🏻 、 昔、親に連れられて来た時は貸し切り家族風呂のアメニティがシャネルだったけど、今は家族風呂自体がなくなった様子…。 、 オリジナルのきんつばがしっとりで美味しかった記憶があって、今回もちゃんとあって食べられました。 #japan #hiroshima #sekitei #広島 #石亭

At the Sekitei in Hiroshima, you can have a pleasant stay enjoying the expansive 1,500 square meters (about 16,146 square feet) garden. Its library space, the Yukashita Salon, feels like a hiding spot for adults, complete with an entrance that takes you downstairs and below ground. In addition, you can have a fulfilling stay by sitting on the chairs facing the garden as you are free to read, enjoy some wine or view the carp fish in the ponds.

6. Lamplight Books Hotel Nagoya

這次在名古屋住的飯店真心喜歡! Location很棒,飯店的對面就是Lawson便利商店,走路到伏見站大概三分鐘,距離最熱鬧的榮也大概走15分鐘左右而已就可以抵達,不管是去名古屋城、大須觀音寺、名古屋電視塔……等,都是地鐵三站內可以抵達。 整間飯店設計的氛圍很舒服,整體就是一個文青風格,Lobby旁就是小型的圖書館,一個小小的空間就有三面書牆,從文學到設計相關的書都有,還有一小櫃文具販售的陳設,根本小誠品啊!這邊也設有座位區讓人在此閱讀,所有的書籍都是可以租借到自己房內慢慢看的;櫃檯的旁邊也設有咖啡廳,一整個就是很適合在這裡慢慢消磨時光,很可惜不懂日文,只能簡單翻閱。 房內的設備齊全,冰箱、熱水壺、吹風機那些基本的都有,另外也附有日本飯店必備的加濕機,插座也很充足,每個插座旁都還設有一個USB孔,備品也是全附,連住兩天已請房務不用打掃了,回到飯店還是看到門口掛著一袋乾淨的毛巾供客人使用,揪感心啊。 服務人員不意外的就是日本式的親切。 重點是,單人房一人睡一間,一晚才差不多1600臺幣而已,cp值根本爆表啊!只能推推了。 #LAMPLIGHTBOOKSHOTELnagoya #ランプライトブックスホテル名古屋 #wonderfulhotel #nagoya #japan #找飯店Michelle😆
