Breakfast at the Hotel Villa Fontaine

Business hotels in Japan don't usually provide breakfast as part of their room rates. It is usually an option when you purchase through their websites. I'm just not sure if the accommodations are availed via sites like Agoda or as inclusion of the breakfast is not always indicated in the information online. As we asked for assistance from our hosts in booking our hotel rooms, we were able to get a good deal for our rooms and had breakfast as part of our package for three nights. The food was not like the buffets of the more luxurious and larger hotels (e.g., Intercontinental, Hilton, Pan Pacific, Shangri-La, Sofitel, Peninsula, etc.). The buffet was simpler with less choices but definitely nutricious enough and filling for the day's first full meal.

Typical breakfast of fish, burger, scrambled eggs, thinly sliced cabbage, bun, rice and miso soup.
Natto was also available but I'm not one among those who find this Japanese delicacy okay for their palates. Of course, there was coffee, tea, juice and water available to wash down the food. There was usually also yogurt available and I usually cap my meal off with a cup of yogurt.
