In Japan, tourists are offered all sorts of types of accommodation, both in Western and Japanese style, which differ in class and price. Western-style hotels are found in all Japanese cities, and hotels of famous international hotel chains are widely represented in major cities of the country. Economy class or business hotels are located in all large and medium cities. These are clean, comfortable, but small hotels that have less developed infrastructure (pools, restaurants, fitness centers, etc.). These hotels are popular with budget travelers and Japanese businessmen. Rooms are usually single occupancy only, double and triple rooms are also available, although numbers are limited. To feel the atmosphere of the very Japan in which the rulers of the daimyo stopped in the past, we recommend staying at least a day in a traditional Japanese ryokan hotel. Rooms in ryokan are usually one-room, large, without partitions. The floors in the rooms are covered with traditional tatami (woven-straw) mats. They sleep on a wadded futon mattress, which is spread out in the evening by the servants. Numerous famous hot spring resorts known as onsen are actually ryokan hotels built near hot springs. The cost of living includes two meals a day: the same evening sumptuous dinner with local delicacies and a simple breakfast.

Japanese cuisine in recent years has ceased to be part of the exotic, has received high praise in the world and has become familiar and loved in many countries. But few first-time visitors to Japan will be prepared for the variety and splendor of traditional dishes. Food in Japan is something that you will remember with pleasure and tenderness for the rest of your life.
Festivals and Holidays
In Japan, each season has its own colorful festivals, traditional ceremonies and rituals. Since ancient times, the Japanese have found spiritual powers in the sacred world of nature and worshiped them as “kami” spirit gods. This worship is the basis of the Shinto religion. Festivals, or matsuri, are held for the purpose of worshiping and communicating with the kami, bringing them prayers: a rich harvest, prosperity in business, happiness, success and prosperity of the local people. Other holidays and rituals, such as snow festivals, fireworks, are arranged for a large population of tourists.
