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.
Osaka is the largest city in western Japan, and its history dates back over 1,500 years. During the Edo Period, Osaka became an important distribution center as feudal lords sent their rice to the Osaka merchants for delivery to other parts of Japan. As the merchants prospered, the city grew and flourished. Today, Osaka is a large industrial and commercial city with a population of over 2.5 million people. The city is also known for its traditional Kabuki theater and Bunraku puppet theater as well as its fine Japanese cuisine.
