The chain hotels "Gran Via" in Japan are just a few steps from the major Japanese ski cities. I had not been before in any hotel of this chain and my first time was at the Okayama Gran Vía. The reception hall is spacious and lovely, in the side wings are rooms for events, weddings, etc..When I visited people were celebrating a wedding held Japanese accidental style. The rooms are normal, a bit small for a hotel of this category, but Japan is not characterized by the spaciousness of their rooms. The bathroom is small, but has some of those Japanese wáteres with several options that are operated from a knob on the side.
