    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.

    Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku

    2-3-1 Yoyogi, Tokyo - Map
    "Nice hotel with friendly staff and great location"
    We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku. The location is perfect- walkable to food, shops, and most importantly, the Shinjuku subway station, which is well-connected to other parts of Tokyo. Yet the hotel is also in a quiet corner of the road so it is a peaceful place to rest. Room is small as expected but functional and comfortable enough. Staff is very helpful. Each time we had a question about the best way to get somewhere, they patiently gave us all of the options and variables so we could choose the best option for our needs. I did not eat in the restaurant or breakfast buffet so I can't comment on that aspect, but we would stay here again, no question.

    "New Hotel and Great Location"
    Just across Takashimaya and short walking distance to the other shopping areas in Shinjuku plus access to the subway. Minor drawback is the small, limited gym facility and no pool.

    "Nice & Conveniently located hotel"
    Firstly the airport limousine bus drops and picks you up from this hotel. It's about a 7 minute walk to Shinjuki station, and you'll pass by lots of cafes, family marts, shops. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom size were both fine. Great hotel from which to explore Tokyo. Highly recommended.

    "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.

    Hotel Universal Port

    "Good hotel"
    Stayed here on the 30th September for 2 nights. The hotel is conveniently located next to universal and the ferry to the aquarium goes from behind the hotel. It's a 2 minute walk to the restaurants outside universal. Hotel facilities are good but no milk or coffee available in the room. Didn't realise that universal is in a shipping port.

    Hotel Monterey Kyoto

    "Great location!"
    Hotel was located in central downtown Kyoto. Subway stops were minutes away, Starbucks across the street. Most everywhere you would want to go was in walking distance or easy subway access. I was concerned that the hotel might not meet my 'western' expectations, but it did that and more. Our room was billed as having a queen size bed but the bed was clearly a super sized king plus. I was pleasantly surprise to find a mini fridge in the room. The a/c worked great. Security in the hotel, as far as access, was great. The internet connection was strong and working. Great value for the price!!!!
