Yes, the tea house is excellent. The green tea is made in traditional, authentic way. Sandwiches were also excellent, and the atmosphere quite relaxing. Do not, however, plan on staying in the hotel. The light fixtures are bare bulbs; the flimsy shade fell down when pulled; the metal soap dish in the corner basin was rusty. The bathrooms are clean but shared by all, including the tub with the red shag carpet glued to the outside. If you have a car, plan on finding your own (expensive) parking. No phone, no clock, no fun! But my son insisted. Consider it an unparralled experience.
Pros: Historic area, Nearby restaurants, Authentic tea house
Cons: No amenities, Shared bathroom, Shabby, and not chic
