RYOKAN in JAPAN
The following locations have ryokan you can book through our system
Staying in a ryokan is different to hotel with the etiquette and "rules" being a little different. Some ryokan will expect you to arrive at dusk or earlier if you are having dinner as well. Depending on the design of the ryokan you may need to take off your shoes at reception or before you reach your room. You would always remove your shoes before stepping on a tatami mat.You will be provided with slippers at this point. You should wear the slippers and not walk directly on the tatami mat with your socks. Some ryokan will have a set of slippers just for the toilet area, where you change slippers so you don't wear your house slippers in the toilet area.
