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.
Located in the northwest part of the Kanto region, Gunma Prefecture is only a one hour train ride from Tokyo. Famous for its natural beauty, Gunma Prefecture is best known for its hot springs, lakes, highlands, and mountains. There are a number of national and prefecture parks, and within these parks there are an endless number of spectacular hot springs (See a Hot Spring Experience for more details). Gunma Prefecture is a wonderful destination for those travelers seeking to escape the city and get back to nature.
