    Japan Hotel 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.

    "Great location with small rooms."
    The location of the hotel is right in all the action of a busy city... Shinjuku district of Tokyo. I hope there is a shuttle serviced by the hotel to the Shinjuku Station and the Tokyo Station. The rooms are very small. The beds are hard and the pillows are small, but the service of the staff made it up. Enjoyed the stay and will definitely consider using this hotel again.

    "Comfortable, well-located, compact"
    The room was clean, comfortable, and located very close to public transportation making it easy to access much of Kyoto. We were a roughly half hour walk from the Gion area where we spent most of our time. The room is definitely small, but you probably shouldn't plan to spend most of your time in it anyway. The front desk is available at all times for late check-in or requests.

    "Pure TOKYO Glamour"
    It is by far the fanciest hotel I have ever stayed at and I travel a lot! The atmosphere, the views, the bar!!! They take their craft very seriously but the cocktails are amazing. You get your money's worth. Only draw backs are that they wanted to charge for using the pool (if I pay 450$ a night I expect that I have all the facilities available for no extra charge) and our room was in the 30th floor, the exit elevators are on the 36th. So we had to go up to cross the lobby to go back down but really the views and the amazing art and architecture make it all go away.
