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.
The city of Nagoya is the fourth largest city in Japan. Located in the heart of central Japan, Nagoya was originally a castle-town and visitors can still see the famous Nagoya castle with dolphins adorning its roof. Today, Nagoya is a modern city of high-rise buildings and highways, and it is also a major transportation hub. There are a few interesting attractions in the city however, such as the Tokugawa Art Museum which houses the belongings of the powerful Tokugawa family who once ruled Japan. There is also the Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology which is a tribute to Nagoya's industrial history. Nagoya is also a good starting point to explore such places as nearby Inuyama, a small castle town, and Takayama, the "little Kyoto" of central Japan, as well as the Japan Alps.
