Where to sleep in JapanAccommodation in Japan is relatively expensive. You will be surprised by the size of the rooms, which is really small (although space is very well used). The same hotel can have Western-style rooms with beds, or oriental rooms where you sleep on the floor on a mat. The latter are usually cheaper. Then, we have the famous riokans, oriental establishments where you sleep on tatamis and bathrooms are often collective and Japanese type. Although it may seem uncomfortable, it is an experience that can not fail to try at least once in your journey.
If use our routes, on the tab of each day you will find our recommended hotel for that city or town, with basic information about the establishment and where to reserve it at the best price. They are our Smart Choice, the best combination of charm, price and location.
In addition, for each location we will indicate a short list of other recommended hotels, in case our Smart Choice is not available, or in the event that you prefer something cheaper or higher level:
- Basic Choice Hotels: maintaining good value for money, hotels are generally cheaper than our Smart Choice.
- Premium Choice Hotels: although more expensive than our Smart Choice, they offer a higher level of comfort.
- Backpacker Choice Hotels: whenever possible, we also give you the cheapest option in every place, a shelter where you can reserve beds in shared rooms but with a minimum level of comfort.
