    Japan Hotel & Resort Travel Guide

    Japanese culture is a fusion of East and West. Though skyscrapers, gigantic animated billboard,s and high-speed transportation systems dominate Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, the cities are still places where the austere beauty of a traditional Japanese sculpture garden is also revered. There are plenty of chain hotels in Japan, but you will see many other lodging options too, such as the traditional guesthouses called ryokans.

    Tokyo's Ghibli Museum is an homage to anime, showcasing the work of one of Japan's top anime film studios. The Roppongi Art Triangle houses the Mori Museum, the Suntory Museum, and the National Art Center of Tokyo. While the Meiji-jingu Shrine, the largest Shinto shrine in Japan, is dedicated to the spirit of the early 20th-century Japanese emperor who presided over Japan's transition from feudal backwater to world power. While there are plenty of Japan hotel packages in Tokyo, language differences can make locating rooms difficult. Many travelers prefer to book reservations for a cheap Japan hotel deal before they leave home so that they can take advantage of discount rates.

    Travel to Kyoto, Japan's ancient imperial capital, on the Shinkansen bullet train, Asia's fastest high-speed rail. There are 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kyoto, including the Kamigamo Shrine built in A.D. 678 on the shores of the Kamo River and the Nijo Castle, the donjon of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

    The Kyoto Imperial Palace, home to Japan's royal family for five centuries, is worth seeing too, and tours are free. The gardens surrounding the Palace, designed by the most famous landscape architect in Japanese history, are widely considered Japan's most beautiful gardens. Kyoto is also famous for its handicrafts and for being one of the best places to shop for textiles, pottery, fans, and curios to bring back home as gifts. A number of Japan hotel deals can be had here too.

    If you are interested in samurais, Matsumoto Castle features a superb collection of 16th-century samurai armor, the oldest extant kept in Japan, and a special chamber built in 1635 that was specially designed for viewing the moon. The Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa took 150 years to build, and it is one of the largest gardens in Japan, featuring knolls, trees, streams, ponds, and footpaths.

    Japan hotels are very comfortable, but Western tourists should expect a set of amenities that are different from what they are used to. The Japanese, for example, prefer to sleep on hard pillows. These cultural differences are listed on Expedia so that you find cheap hotel deals in Japan that offer your preferred amenities at reasonable prices.

    "Convenient location, small rooms"
    The hotel room was clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable. Great for 2 people but the room we had in the main tower is not suited for a family. It is too small. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the JR Shinagawa Station. The buffet breakfast at the Hapuna restaurant was excellent.

    "Convenient"
    I stayed in a scenic king the first 5 nights and everything was great. I moved to a single room and Do not recommend at all. The wifi connection in the singles works very little to none at all so if you have the money, get a bigger room. The view is nice I guess from the higher rooms, but the main reason why I gave the hotel a good score is because of the good location. The breakfast is a-ok. Some staff have trouble with comprehension so you have to be patient with them,. TLDR; a nice clean hotel, get a higher room if you can. close to JR station, easy to get to a lot of places.

    "Very near dotondori"
    We only stayed 1 night and we booked a non-smoking room, but obviously it was a smoking room. They put an air purifier in the room, but it did not help. The staff were really very nice. We came earlier and left our things, to our surprise, they already brought our things to our room. Smooth checking in and checking out. I hope they will change their check out time. 10:00 a.m. is to early.

    "Fantastic hotel in a good location."
    We stayed at this hotel for 11 nights and found it to be really comfortable. The room was spacious and super clean. Location is great if you want to frequent the Sanjo dori area and kawaramachi area. Also it is great to get to Nishiki market and Gion area. Karasuma oike station is very close by and eating places doted every where. Staff were fantastic, efficient, helpful and really one of the best places we have stayed at in awhile. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel.
