Summary
Richly illustrated and exhaustively researched, Japanese Inns & Hot Springs is the definitive guide to Japanese spas and hot springs known as Ryokans. It presents the finest Ryokans in Japan, from historic properties like Hiiragiya in Kyoto and Kikkaso in Hakone to luxury retreats like Zaborin in Hokkaido and Tenku-no-Mori in Kyushu. In this Japan travel guide you will find: the 40 best Japanese ryokan and onsens for English-speaking visitors (including 13 in the Tokyo area and 11 in and around Kyoto and Nara); a description of the special features of each ryokan and what is included in your stay; tips on how to choose the right ryokan for you; and practical advice on how to book a stay and a detailed etiquette guide. Above all else this Ryokan guide reveals the enduring traditions of Japanese hospitality, a rich heritage reaching back a thousand years to the time when Japan's hot spring bathing culture took root. The beautiful properties in this book also illustrate the unique design sensibility for which Japan is so justly renowned. Indispensable tips on booking a Japanese Ryokan that is right for you and reaching each property by train, bus and taxi are provided along with a detailed etiquette guide to staying at a Ryokan and bathing in an Onsen, as well as descriptions of the special features of each of the inns featured
