For those planning to travel to Tokyo, Kyoto or Osaka

Have you already booked a place to stay?

Japan has many types of accommodation, such as ryokan, lodging houses and hotels.

In particular, ryokan are unique in that they are the most traditional form of accommodation in Japan. Built using Japanese architecture, these time-honored inns are places one can experience traditional Japanese style with all five senses, such as washoku (Japanese cuisine), rooms with tatami mats, and yukata (an informal cotton-made kimono).

We have plenty of ryokan available in popular tourist cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, so please give this traditional form of accommodation a try.
