On my first night in Japan, I stayed in a hotel before moving into my dorm the next day. The hotel had been booked for me in advance, on behalf of my exchange program, UCEAP.
It was a tiny little thing, with rooms for 1 person. So cozy and private. And the staff were so polite, always bowing to me each time I entered or exited the lobby.
Here’s a video of Musashi-Sakai Station, where the hotel was located. Listen to those summer insects!
