This hilly part of town is more remote and far from the busy city, so you get a real suburb feeling here. We loved the hilly greenery around and hear birds and wind for a change. The neighborhood, where a lot of Japanese people live, has a nice atmosphere and good coffee places and restaurants, although a bit further out.
The cottage is very comfortable and feels like a complete home, we loved the big TV and couch especially since we had a lot of rain, so it was an excellent cocooning place. One point for improvement would be the cleanliness of the kitchen. There were some traces of previous guests, which is not always that pleasant. Other than this, totally recommendable place, very modern and comfortable!
