Accommodation in Japan

During your Japan holiday, you’ll stay in a wide range of accommodation types – from very traditional Japanese Ryokans to more Western-style hotels. For instance, you might spend the night in a city hotel, with a business like feel but in a fantastic central location – or you might find yourself in a traditional Ryokan with views over a spectacular mountain range. We use a handpicked selection of hotels, packed with local character and the right combination of cleanliness, location, friendly staff and good service.

Standard Accommodation - Category 3

When picking hotels for this category, we’ve looked for good value accommodation in good locations, as close as possible to transport links. Japanese hotel rooms in this category tend to be more snug than what you might be used to, though they will have everything you need for a comfortable stay. You could be staying in a comfortable, central hotel right across from the city train station or perhaps close to a national monument or park.
