    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 Stay, Nice Location"
    My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku the first week of November, 2015. This was our first time in Japan and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the hotel & Shinjuku prefecture. The hotel is well situated close to the Shinjuku transit station, the "busiest station in the world" according to one of our tour guides. It's very well situated a block or two away from the main roads & station itself, but with the huge underground station complex, there are seemingly endless entry and exit points to the station and excellent transit system. The hotel is a full service hotel with a good restaurant. It has a large modern and well-appointed lobby. Our specific room was tiny by North American standards, but we both found the room to be one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in regardless of the price or star rating of the hotel. The decor in our room was not new, but subtly modern & well maintained. Despite it's tiny size with the double bed against one wall, we felt quite comfortable once unpacked & settled. I found everything, especially the bathroom to be very efficiently planned and more practical than other larger places we have stayed. The Japanese are definitely very good at making the most of space available. The bed was quite firm - suitable for Asian preferences - but may be a bit hard for some North American tastes. We both had no problems and felt relaxed in the morning. The room & AC were quiet, with no sound from neighbours.

    "Spacious hotel room in Shinjuku"
    I booked the hotel since I read the rooms are of good size and it has good star rating. It is also close to Shinjuku station. The hotel was a bit of a walk from Shinjuku station but just check the map at the station if you are unsure. The hotel is shown there if I'm not mistaken. Check in process was smooth. The room was spacious and we were very happy when we open the window in our room. We have the view of the city. Right across is Takashimaya and they provided a paper to show what buildings are there that might be of our interest. The service is top notch. The lady in the hotel shop kindly assisted us with sending our luggage to our next destination in Disneyland area. The location is very convenient and we definitely will be staying in this hotel again if we are based in Shinjuku. The only suggestion I would make is it would be good if they can provide a laundry room with washing machines and dryers for customers.

    Hotel was interesting as it is having a minion theme now. Room was clean and comfortable. A good gesture by the hotel to provide bubble bath. The lobby with the fish tank is eye-catching. Compared to other hotels around the region, this hotel is more interesting.
