  • The room states private bathroom and shows cypress bathtub, but description says "shared" ? I gather it is a private bathtub given it is more expensive? Thank you Amanda
    Japanese-style family room with private bathroom. You can use the private family bath of the outside without an additional charge. We hear the time of taking the outside bath when you check-in. You may not take a bath with other people.
