Our accommodations are either ryokans (traditional Japanese-style inns), cozy family-run pensions hosted by friendly owners, or western-style hotels – a range of best accommodations in the areas visited. They are chosen not only for their comfort and quality of services, but also for their authenticity and regional characters. All of them have private baths and toilets in guest rooms (unless otherwise specified in each itinerary).
In a ryokan you can experience the elements of Japanese culture and customs: living in a room with tatami (straw mat) flooring, changing into a yukata (robe) after taking an onsen hot-spring bath, sleeping on a futon (bedding) put down directly on the tatami floor. Our trip prices are per person based on a double occupancy basis. A limited number of single-occupancy rooms are available for an additional charge on most tours. If you are a single traveler, please inquire for room availability.
