    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.

    "Central and renovated hotel in Namba"
    We stayed at the Namba Oriental for 5 nights. We were given a room on the 8th floor, which had been finished being renovated two days earlier. Very large room for Japan standards (it had a couch which had a sofa bed underneath) and a King bed. Bathroom is small, normal by Japan standards. Room had a NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto coffee machine with 3 pods provided daily. Very pleased with the room. Free wifi which was good speed, minimal drop-outs. We did not eat at the hotel or use any other amenities.First up, it can be a little difficult to find without a printed map, particularly coming out of the subway as there is several exits, but after the first go, you'll find it like a pro. Fantastic location with plenty of eating options around and shops everywhere. Lawson's was next door, as was McDonalds. Subway/metro etc entry's/exits were close for the 3 Namba stations to access other areas of Osaka. Short walk to Dōtonbori area with more food and shopping options. Grab a location map from reception as this shows uncommon items like a coin laundry - we went through a few over the 5 days as we referred to it extensively! On our next trip to Osaka, we will definitely stay here again.
