All About Japan

Traditional Japanese Inn Experience

Accommodation Ryokan Fukushima Tohoku

From the tatami room to the kitchen and dining room, Only in Japan presents the story of the traditional Japanese inn, or ryokan. If you want to travel Japan like a local, this is the way to do it!

It just takes 75 minutes on the Shinkansen (bullet train) to get from Tokyo to the snowy mountains of Fukushima Prefecture, an ideal alternative to crowded hot spring hotspots like Nikko and Hakone. And where there are hot springs, there are ryokan!

Only in Japan's 13-town tour of Fukushima's hot spring towns will give you a comprehensive picture of Japan's classic ryokan experience—but if you're still hungry for more, there's plenty to be found right here!
