    Hi, there, according to their official website. They are closed for maintenance until December 16th. I'm also sure Ogino-san is a busy man. He is not there 24-7 answering questions all day long. You can also book online.

    I tried to provide with you the email address of Ogino-san but Tripadvisor blocked me. I tried different ways/formats of providing you his email address but it did not work. :(
