|It's amazing how kind the staff is. They all welcome us guests to enjoy our travels, and even talk with us casually about anything.
I didn't return one night, and though I though of calling them to let them know, I decided not to. I thought they wouldn't worry, since I'm an adult and calling them seemed almost like checking in with parents.
The next morning, I found out that they waited for me, wondering if I'd return. I thanked them with special gifts I had picked up nearby at a specialty food store in Shinsaibashi called Kaldi. They were so grateful, and even I was very relieved to convey my thanks.
I always look forward to staying there!|
