Overall, another pleasant experience with Toyoko Inn. Toyoko Inn Hirosaki Ekimae is the nearest budget hotel to the train station, in fact literally a stone throw away. Other accommodation options such as Route Inn is located opposite while the higher end Hotel Naqua City is found on the other side of the train station. A sense of familiarity to Toyoko Inn has gradually grown over the last few trips to Japan. Helpful front desk service, similar room layout equipped with basic necessities - these are just some of common features that I have already taken granted for whenever I stay in Toyoko Inn hotels. Enjoyed the simple fare they had to offer for breakfast as I was delighted to see my favourite onigiri available on the menu for the day. Due to its strategic location and affordable price, I will highly recommend this hotel for travellers who intend to stay overnight in Hirosaki city.
(1) Hirosaki JR Station and Appliese (アプリース), a small scale shopping mall connected seamlessly to the train station. If you decide to head out for breakfast in the morning, there are several cafes to choose from - Mister Donut, Doutor and Vie De France, and all open for business at 0700 hrs. There is also a 100 yen shop located on Level 3 of Appliese.
(2) Ito Yotocho (イトーヨーカドー), a departmental store about 5 minutes walk away. A 100 yen shop (Can Do) is located on the fifth floor.
