At a Japanese inn, there is a fee set per-person that includes the basic room for one night, with dinner and breakfast. Some inns offer fees that include the room charge and breakfast or the room charge without meals, so please confirm the plan best suited to your budget when making reservations. In most cases, check in is at 3 p.m. and check out is at 10 a.m.
In most cases, your room will be a traditional Japanese styled room (wa-shitsu) , a room with tatami flooring (rice straw mats). However, some Japanese inns offer various choices, including Japanese−Western room (Wayou-shitsu) equipped with a bedroom and Japanese style room, rooms with an open-air bath, and Western style rooms that are equipped with a western style bed. When making a reservation, please ensure you choose a room that is to your liking. It is a tradition to remove shoes at the entrance to of the room, and feel free to use the slippers provided by the inn while walking around in the building. Please keep all valuables safe by leaving them with the front desk or locked in the safes provided in your rooms.
At Japanese inns, all guests are given a traditional Japanese robe called a yukata. Please feel free to change into your robe and relax in your room. When leaving your room, it is recommended to wear the short coat (hanten) provided to stay warm. Of course, you can also enjoy the inn dressing up in your own clothes.
In Japanese inns, it is common to have a set meal plan called a kaiseki. The meal plan is most often a banquet food that is enjoyed while drinking, which is a well-established Japanese tradition. The meal begins with appetizers served traditionally with alcohol and rice, followed by small side dishes.
In traditional Japanese inns (called ryokans), each inn has shared baths, separated into male and female bathing areas. To ensure that everyone can relax and enjoy the bathing areas, please observe the following guidelines.
1. Disrobe or take off your clothes in the dressing room and bring your towel into the bathing area.
2. Before entering the bath area, please wash off in the shower or use the buckets provided.
3. Please enter the large bath quietly so that others are not disturbed and do not put your towel into the tub water.
