Which One Is The Best For Me?
Travelling to Japan soon but having trouble finding a suitable accommodation?
Japan Offers a huge variety of interesting hotels to cater to travelers, but that would mean we could get a little indecisive over which one to choose as each of them is unique.
1. Traditional Japanese
Ryokan is one of the special accommodations that can only be found in an onsen (hot spring) area, for example Beppu in Oita Prefecture in Kyushu. In a traditional ryokan, you can experience sleeping on a futon in a tatami room. You may choose your own yukata to be worn before and after taking a bath in hot spring located inside or outside the ryokan itself. The stay at a ryokan gets you a set of tasty traditional yet nutritional Japanese breakfast called washoku – rice, miso soup, grilled fish, tamagoyaki, and vegetable.

Have you heard of love hotels? Love hotels are specially designed for couples. They can usually easily be identified from its unique yet fancy architecture from outside to inside. Every room in the love hotels is themed differently such as playground, prison, hospital, classroom and so on. Some even come with jacuzzi. The specialised rooms come at a rate higher for a kyūkei (rest) as well as for an overnight stay compared to other hotels. At every love hotel, the check-in procedure is extremely discreet, private and confidential to protect their customers. The process is usually done by machine or even manually, and the receptionist will not be able to see the customers face-to-face.
