As seen in Episode 14-15, Ohana is finding that she is dedicated to the life of running an inn. Although that particular scene had a bit too much fan service, I thought it was very perceptive in episode 14 when they show Ohana in the bath contemplating the callouses and rough spots she is developing on her hands and knees from her work.

It was very true to life in that hard work leaves its mark on you. I also like how Yuina finds that you can get pleasure from working hard, even if it's a job you "don't enjoy". At the end Yuina decides to try find that career that she can be passionate about.

Over the course of the series, I've enjoyed reading the comments from Crunchyroll members who work in the service industry as they reflect on their own work experiences with respect to the series.

For those who've worked, especially, in an inn /hotel /restaurant /pub do you find that the series tries to realistically show some of the challenges and rewards of working in the hospitality industry?
