Main entrance door was just renovated.

Hi there ,I am Matsu from J-hoppers Hida Takayama.

Recently we had the main door renovated.

The last door was slide door. So when the door was opend, all the warm air inside got cold .

Also the door made some squeaking noises.

This is the photo of new door as below

The width of the door is wide enough that backpackers have easy access to come through with carrying large luggage

I hope evryone will like the door.
