    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.

    "Perfect location, and great staff help!"
    For an American with not Japanese language skills, this is the perfect hotel! The concierge was so very helpful...she actually wrote out a whole step by step cheat sheet for us to get where we wanted to go. It took a a lot of time for her to help,us with our travel plans AND she also called all around, limo from airport, airport, etc. And found my husbands lost wallet! the hotel,is just a few blocks away for tne biggest subway station, which made it very easy to navigate using map from hotel. Would absolutely stay there again,

    "Great location "
    This hotel is in a perfect location. The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms are a bit tight but that is expected in Tokyo. When we checked in we told the woman at the desk that it was our honeymoon so we would love a great room. She put us in a very nice room on the top floor overlooking Mt Fuji. It was wonderful! There was one problem that was a pretty big deal. When we went to check out and get a taxi to the airport we were told that a taxi would be very expensive and that we should have reserved a spot on the bus. Apparently there is a bus that takes you to the airport but it fills up quickly so you need to reserve ahead of time. No one told us that when we checked in. And the day before we left we asked for a late check out and we were still not offered this option. So we wound up paying $26,000 yen for a taxi to narita airport instead of $3,000 for the bus!!! That's almost $200 US dollars. Everything else was great about the hotel, but I hope this review helps future guests so they don't get stuck in the same situation.

    "Clean and comfy hotel close to Universal Studio"
    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.
