What is a Ryokan? 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.
Hakodate lies in the southwest corner of Hokkaido and faces the Tsugaru Strait. At the end of the 19 century, Hakodate developed as a port town open to foreign trading and as a result today visitors can see the remnants of European, American and Russian style architecture. The Motomachi section of Hakodate houses the Western style architecture as well as various churches including the Russian Orthodox Church. One of the biggest attractions of the city is the Asaichi fish market located near the Hakodate train station. There are more than 360 stalls selling all kinds of seafood in the morning hours. At the top of Hakodate mountain visitors can enjoy a spectacular view of the city below.
