Here again with my next installment. the hotel I stayed at was the Comfort Hotel of Narita. It was an inexpensive place at about $58. It was located only two blocks from the train station, but because of the layout of the streets in was about a four block walk that took you past the front of city hall. I noticed that on the that side of the railroad tracks the city is modern and filled with high-rise hotels and parking garages. The other side of the tracks is the older town with much smaller buildings and narrow streets. My room was of course small but functional. Clean and well equipped.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0105.jpg
I had a flat screen TV with remote. clock and alarm was in headboard, blow dryer, mini fridge and coffee/tea maker. There was only one small pillow though. They also provided a sleep shirt, which I didn't use.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0106.jpg
The bathroom was tiny as I learned when I cracked my knee on the sink. The tub was shorter and taller than we are accustomed to here. The tub was a good six inches taller so pick up your feet. The soap and shampoo were dispensed from wall mounted containers much like in a public restroom. There were towels and a bath mat, but no washcloths. In fact I don't think they have washcloths in Asia. In Cebu I went to a department store and what we would call a washcloth they called a dishcloth. Also the bathroom tissue was like rice paper. No surprise there. http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0107.jpg
Yes, I took pictures of toilets on this trip. I rarely saw a non-electronic or manual bowl the whole time I was in japan. I tried the bidet function once just to out of curiosity. I'll say this, those things are wicked accurate. I noticed on the control panel you could adjust the water pressure. I saw that it was set on mid-range. I'd hate to think what it would do to you on full power. http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0129.jpg
They had a continental breakfast. The eggs where really runny (but good) and sausage links that looked like little hot dogs, a variety of rices balls, dry cereal, etc. Chocksticks and tiny silverware. I grabbed two extra rice balls. They came in handy later while I was standing in line at the Philippine Air counter.
This is a fire station. They are found in all modern buildings. I saw a bunch of them at the airport.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0137.jpg
The view from my window. In Asia they don't have safety features like we do here. If you open the window to your seventh floor hotel room, expect to fall out if you are not careful. Haha.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0127.jpghttp://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0132.jpg
The parking garages are the size of hotels.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0135.jpg
This was the most polite elevator I had ever seen. I didn't know exactly what she was saying, but I had an idea.http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0406.jpg
Ground floor of my hotel and then looking up. http://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0404.jpghttp://i383.photobucket.com/albums/oo271/Hobby-Ninja/IMG_0405.jpg
The fist floor was other businesses so you took an elevator to the second floor to get to the lobby.
Next time my night excursion after I checked in at the hotel.
