Japanese style accommodation

Minshuku - Japanese bed and breakfast

"There are different kinds of ryokan and minshuku inns in Japan... Personally I like minshukus best as they small and more personable. The owners run the minshuku and cook the meals. They take great pride preparing meals and making sure you are comfortable."

Ryokan – Japanese inn

“Futon, onsen, and dinner are the three reasons I choose to stay at ryokan over other lodging facilities...
Dinner is usually amazing at a ryokan too. Local produce is usually used to make the best food and you will be able to eat the local specialties.”

Using a sento public bath
