Japan Hotels

If you’ve got money to spend and a penchant for high-tech hotels, you’re in luck. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you’re also in the clear. Japan’s lodging options are as varied as its climate and cultural practices. The Web sites we recommend in this section show you the range.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Most hotels and other accommodation options in Japan (including hostels) can be booked online. Take advantage of the Web by booking early; it may save you some cash.
  • Japan is the originator of the pod hotel: somewhat coffinlike rooms that were first built in the 1970s, according to World Hum. However, today people in Japan looking for a cheap place to catch a nap have been settling for reclining chairs at Internet cafes. Rest assured that basic hotels and hostels are also readily available.
  • Ryokans are accommodations unique to Japan. Although these traditional inns tend to be more expensive than regular hotels, they’ll give you a taste of ancient cultural features such as tatami (straw mats), communal baths, and yukata (kimono-style robes).
