About Japanese-style inns…
A lodging facility where you can experience the Japanese style “I・Shoku・Jyu (clothing, food, and shelter)” filled with history, tradition, technique, and culture.
Unlike hotels, “Ryokans” are where Japanese culture is still left very strongly but arranged per Ryokan according to each owners’ preferences. It is the one and only original lodging facility around the world.
At a Ryokan, guests are provided a Yukata (cotton Kimono).
Kimonos were ordinary clothing until a while ago – it was part of the daily life.
Life style has changed greatly now a days, and Kimonos are no longer appropriate.
At a Ryokan, guests are to wear the Yukata to feel and experience the traditional living.
Japanese buildings are traditionally wooden, but recently there are many Ryokans made from reinforced concrete.
Ryokans with long histories usually are wooden two stories buildings and are evaluated from the building itself.
Reinforced concrete Ryokans’ interiors are Japanese style as well.
It differs per buildings on how far it follows the traditional style, but many facilites have Tatami, Toko-no-ma (bedroom), and Shoji (sliding door).
These have been invented in the past from the weather and spirit of Japanese.
It is a lodging facility where guests can experience the good old life style.
