Japan

“The Tranquil”

Meander ancient Japan’s coastline and visit kimono makers, bonsai tenders and ryokan guest houses. Stop now and then to gaze at rice paddies, visit Buddhist shrines, and at the end of the day take a dip in the hot-spring onsen baths.

HOTEL TYPE

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Go There NowJapan Biking

The biking was great but the Japanese cultural experience was even better. The Ryokans, the meals, and the special events such as paper making and saki tasting were really an excellent introduction to the culture of Japan.
