    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.

    Good location, lots of famous food and restaurants within walking distance from hotel. A 7-eleven store right at your hotel doorstep. Located close to shopping district. Ease to travel between subway to other place of interests. Located near Namba station. We booked 3 rooms and the hotel did their best to arrange our rooms next to each other. Some hotels we stayed don't bother about the request. Will definitely book again. Keep it up :)

    "Good for a short stay"
    I was there for a business trip so I didn't need anything fancy and the hotel served the purpose. Though it was a little difficult to find at first, it's a few minutes walk from a subway station and a convenience store is located right across from the hotel. My room was pretty small - I only had a small luggage so I had no problem with it but if you have a large suitcase you would not have any space to open it wide.
