    Feels like crashing at your grandfather's place

    Lovely older guy owner, very sweet and welcoming, basically just renting out the rooms of his house. Cooks a huge breakfast in the morning, couldn't possibly finish all of it, so bring your appetite! Doesn't speak much English but enough to get by. Area was very cold at this time of year but there were heaters in each room and electric blankets on the beds - plus a TON of blankets, I didn't want to leave my bed.

    Will stay here again!

    Great! Will definitely come back here! Near to otaru station. There's a slope but it's manageable. The place is not so easy to find as there's no unit number. See my photo and look out for this lane and then go to the house with the 'L' letter. That's the place. The condition may not be as good but the place is very clean. Clean bedsheets and toilet. Service is awesome! The bath and breakfast. Wow.
