What is a Ryokan? Like a Western-style inn, maintaining the special, atmosphere and appearance is more important than providing the latest modern conveniences. Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
Japan has eight beautiful regions rich in culture and diversity. Select a region to explore and view available ryokans.
About Japanese Guest Houses
We started Japanese Guest Houses 15 years ago with the simple idea of helping travelers from all around the world discover Japanese Hospitality by staying at a Ryokan (Japanese Inn).
Japanese Ryokans are simply the best way to have a true Japanese experience. Staying at a Ryokan will bring you back to the true senses of life. Fine dining, hot springs bathing, sleeping in Japanese futons, and wearing a Japanese Yukata (cotton robe) are some of the elements that will make your stay memorable.
