0.27km from Fromage TenmanbashiI’ve been to many hotels all around Japan but the Noum is definitely a stand-out. It is located right next to a river which makes it particularly tranquil and its outside as well as its inside are very nicely designed with light colors and wood. Cleanliness was a 10/10 also. What I loved most of all however, is that the Noum showed itself to be a hotel with a heart! First of all, unlike other Japanese hotels, the Noum only hands out or sells several amenities per request and doesn’t just stick them in the rooms only to be used maybe once and then thrown away. This impressed me, as it showed their commitment to eco-friendliness. Further, I found it refreshing to see that the hotel staff wore casual, although stylish, clothing and some even had tattoos. These are very rare things in Japanese hotels and demonstrate a forward-thinking spirit. Not to mention that the staff was particularly warm and friendly, even for Japanese standards. So, if you want to stay in a modern, clean and unique hotel, a stay in the Noum is a must!
