The different types of accommodation in Japan

In the space of a few years, many accommodation solutions have been developed in Japan to welcome the ever-increasing number of tourists. 

Whatever solution is chosen, it is advisable to book in advance to stay in Japan during your stay, especially during the high season. In big cities, it is not uncommon for the rentals to be fully booked, so it is better to validate your reservations before departure.

À la découverte du Japon traditionnel avec le Ryokan

Looking to discover a traditional Japanese accommodation? Ryokan is for you!

Typical Japanese accommodation, the ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn whose architecture and organization correspond to the Edo era (1603-1868). The concept?  To propose an immersion in traditional Japan: onsen, futons, and wooden/bamboo structures will make you discover the oldest aspects of Japanese culture.

Staying in a ryokan also gives you the opportunity to enjoy the very popular onsen, hot springs of volcanic origin. Baths inside, or rather outside (rôtenburo), the experience is unique!

The price is variable depending on the Ryokan chosen and its location! There is something for every price, but it is important to remember that the more expensive the accommodation, the more important the comfort offered!

The interest of Ryokan in 3 points :

  • Immersion in a traditional way of life
  • Discovery of the onsen
  • Being housed in a home that is sometimes centuries old

With an average surface area per capsule of two meters by one for a height of one-meter twenty-five, the capsule hotel seeks to optimize space. Ideal for lovers of minimalism! Inside, the essentials of a small room: a bed and, in some cases, a television. Toilets and baths are shared, but the presence of sento (public baths) brings a friendly and pleasant aspect to share.

Taking its success from salarymen who need a room after a night out with colleagues, the capsule hotel has caught the eye of a diverse clientele: tourists, travelers, locals, etc.

In addition to its originality, the capsule hotel is a practical accommodation at an affordable price!

The capsule hotel in 3 points:

  • To avoid the discomfort of sharing such an intimate space, the dormitories are not mixed. Women on one side and men on the other!


  • Dorms and bathroom/toilet areas are generally single-sex and often located on separate floors. You will have a personal locker with a lock to store your luggage and belongings.


  • The price is similar to that of a youth hostel: count between 2,000 and 7,000 yen (between 16 and 58 €) for a night in a capsule.
