What do you know about “Ryokans”?
Ryokans are Japanese style inns usually at hot spring resorts.
They are not just accommodation facilities where you stay overnight without meals. “Ryokans” have much more value and joy to stay at, such as experiencing authentic culture and hospitality. “The Ryokan” style is based on traditional Japanese style housing. There are “Tatami” floors in each room. When you sleep, you put a “Futon” on the “Tatami” which gives you deep sleep and good dreams. If you have time, you can enjoy hot springs or baths and local culture such as food. You can also talk with local people which you cannot get so easily just by visiting temples and famous places.

How to spend time in “Ryokan”

Usually, Western style rooms have a separated living-room, bedroom and dining-room. However, Japanese authentic style room is all mixed together. You can relax and have dinner at the same place.
The regular plan: overnight with two meals (dinner and breakfast) “Ryokan” is not just about relaxing. There is a waitress who is called “Nakai”. “Nakai” attend you at all times. After your check-in, ”Nakai” prepares Japanese tea and Japanese sweets for you.
