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.
Tsuwano is a town located in Kanoashi District. Tsuwano is remotely located and surrounded by hills. Popularly called the "Little Kyoto of San-In," Tsuwano is known for its picturesque main street, "Tono-machi," which is lined with Edo-era buildings and Koi ponds. The waterway which flows by the main street is filled with lively carp, which add color and vibrance to the picturesque surroundings. Tsuwano is a very popular tourist destination, so weekdays are less crowded, with very early morning being the best time to explore. Tsuwano is more a large village than a town, easily explored on foot or by rental bicycle. Cycling also gives you the option to head down the river along a quiet road, or head up into the upper parts of the village with scenic views down the valley and rustic farmhouses.
