5. Stay in a Ryokan / Ryokan

Breakfast in your bedroom. Spend a day, resting in a dressing gown. Immerse yourself in the bath, overlooking the garden. Do not stir even finger, but to then, only, to bring the food to your mouth. Sounds relaxing? Then we strongly recommend that you spend the night in a good ryokan. The Japanese used all the spa treatments long before, when anyone even heard the word "spa". Ryokan will give you a taste of that, how the Japanese used to live.


What's new

Shinkansen Extended Line

Flights to Hokkaido

The Art of Beer and beer boom

Microbrews are the latest fashion squeak. The best breweries are located in Hokkaido and Kyushu.

Museum D. T. Suzuki

New Museum D. T. Suzuki in Kanazawa, honored in Japan, as the most famous supporter of zen Buddhism, and the garden here is an eloquent lesson in zen aesthetics.

Как добраться

There are flights to Japan from all over the world, Usually, Tokyo, but there are air routes and to a number of other airports.

Although Tokyo may seem like an obvious point of arrival and exit, for many visitors this may not be the case.



For example, if you plan to explore western Japan or the Kansai region, you may be more comfortable flying to Kansai International Airport near Osaka.
