Planning a visit to Japan and haven’t decided where to stay yet? There are a lot of accommodation options to choose from, but in my opinion, the best experience for any traveler would have to be at a local ryokan or Japanese inn.
A Ryokan is a great choice if you want to experience not only the Japanese style of accommodation but also the hospitality of the people who run the establishment. If you want to experience that and more, then definitely check out the Ryokan Tokyo Yugawara.
As the number of tourists visiting the country continues to increase every year, the Ryokan Tokyo Yugawara, which only opened this year in March, aims to accommodate as many tourists as possible. Located in the Kanagawa Prefecture about a 90-minute ride from Tokyo, their concept is to be the Gateway of Japan, and it’s not only the onsen and Japanese food they want their visitors to experience but also the overall culture of Japan itself.
The entire establishment is made with designs featuring places like the torii shrine gates at Fushimi Inari Shrine in Kyoto for its entrance, a large Mount Fuji background in the onsen area, and various Japanese cultural activities like Shodou (calligraphy), Maneki Neko Tsukuri (creating a beckoning cat) and much more.
Guests to the inn may choose to stay in a Japanese Style Room from 11,700~ yen for 4 people/ 24,500~ yen for 6 people, or a Dormitory type room for 2,900 yen a bed per person. As a Japanese inn, comfort rooms and showers are all shared spaces and various facilities are also available.
If you would like to become immersed in the beauty, hospitality, and culture that the Ryokan Tokyo Yugawara can offer, get planning and make a reservation. Their site is also in English which makes it even easier to navigate. Enjoy your trip to the land of the rising sun!
