14.44km from Shakujoko Entrance ParkThe hotel had literally tripled its prices due to it being F1 weekend at Suzuka Circuit. And despite paying triple the normal price for my room, breakfast wasn't even included, which I found to be more than a little stingy! This being said, the hotel offers unrivaled access to Tsu train station - two minutes walk from the hotel door, Then 18 minutes on the local train to Suzuka Circuit Inō Station, 1 hour in the other direction and you are in Osaka Namba. The immediate area of the hotel is fairly industrial and bleak. Nearby. there is a small Lawsons and Family Mart where you can stock up on basic snacks, drinks, and the omnipresent Japanese microwaveable meals There is a microwave oven and a couple of vending machines on the 2nd floor of the hotel. However, If you get fed up with eating fishy things or heating up these awful microwavable meals that the Japanese seem to live on, there is a large Aeon supermarket around 20 mins walk.. Inside you can find a McDonald's and KFC, among others. Sanity & appetite restored! The room was tiny but functional. Bed was the typical Japanese 'small double' offering, and only two thin pillows were provided for two guests which led to an uncomfortable sleep. TV only had local channels - mainly ludicrous gameshows about food. There are a fridge and kettle provided. Bathroom was also small, but shower had good water pressure and temperature. There was no noise disturbance from inside or outside the hotel during our stay. If it wasn't for the daylight robbery on the room rates during race weekend, this would be a reasonable budget hotel.
