Staying in a Ryokan is a must try experience - See our Ryokan & Onsen Guide to find out more and understand the etiquette.

Western style rooms have either a twin or double bed. Japanese style rooms have futon style beds laid on Tatami mats in the traditional Japanese manner. Many of our superb ryokans and hotels have both Japanese and Western style rooms. Ask for details if this is of particular preference. Many Hotels and Ryokans offer 'Onsen' hot spring spa facilities, which is much recommended and uniquely Japanese experience.
