The Tokyu Rei is an attractive modern hotel about a 15-minute walk from the JR Station. We did this with a small amount of luggage, but a taxi might be a better option of you have large suitcases or a number of items to tote. The hotel is just a block from the bus line that goes to Ritsurin Gardens (very nice). The ferry landing for the art island is about 15-minutes by taxi. There are quite a few restaurants and shops near the hotel.
Our room (604) was adequate but a bit small. The king-size bed was comfortable, but it was so large it had to be pushed against one wall making access difficult for the person sleeping on that side. There was an open closet, a desk, a mini-fridge and counter-top hot water maker with tea and coffee packets, and a pay-per-view flat screen tv. The compact bathroom was attractive, with a shower/tub combo, the usual Japanese starship captain’s chair toilet, and a bit of counter space for toiletries. A.c was quiet and effective, and the wifi was stable and fast.
The breakfast buffet had a good selection of both western and Japanese items.
All in all, the Tokyu Rei is a pleasant and convenient place to stay in Takamitsu.More
