    This white building comprised of a triangular design is a complex facility that has become a familiar landmark in Nakano. Inside it contains such facilities as a concert hall, accommodation, a wedding hall, restaurants, banquet halls, training rooms and amusement facilities.

The closest station is Nakano Station.

    I am totally satisfied with its location and services... However, bed size is quite small and short for tall people. Also, not enough towels are offered... Dont forget to order a Japanese cuisine...

  • Kichijouji Satou

    Tokyo Musashino-shi Kichijoji Honcho 1-1-8
    "This Japanese black beef restaurant has appeared in various media outlets as the store with the longest lines in Kichijoji. The shop is located facing the street, almost at the center of the town's famous Sun Road shopping district, and offers high-quality, domestically produced black wagyu beef. In addition to selling by weight for things like sukiyaki, shabu-shabu and rib roasts, they are also known for their freshly fried ""original minced cutlets."" From the moment you bite into it, this dish is bursting with piping hot, juicy meat and a crispy-crunchy texture, and since it's cooked through to the center on low heat, waiting five minutes or so before digging in is a must. Depending on the timing, there may be wait times of several hours."

    Satou holds a fond place amongst my tastebuds, as its the place where I had my first ever menchi katsu, and it took me a few years to get back there to have a taste of it again. Every morning when...
