Book an Authentic Ryokan with Wotif

You’ve already done the beachside resort and the quaint cabin. For this holiday, though, you want something a little different. Ever thought about Japanese guest houses? You can find them tucked away in the cities and farmlands of “The Land of the Rising Sun”. Peaceful settings and top-notch amenities make them a welcome—and comfortable—break from a regular hotel. If you’re looking to take your Japanese adventure to the next level, staying in one of these things is a great first step. Are you ready to go? Check out Wotif’s amazing deals on traditional Japanese accommodation and take your pick.

If you thought starting your morning off with a dip in a natural hot spring was impossible, think again. All you have to do is book a stay at an onsen ryokan and voila! What could be better than sliding into a natural hot tub to start the day? Follow that up with a breakfast of steamed rice, grilled mackerel, egg, tofu, and a hot cup of green tea that will be delivered right to your sliding front door. After a filling brekkie, you’ll be ready to explore nearby temples, monkey-filled forests, art galleries, and history museums. When you’re ready to return from a day of exploring, change into your yukata—it’s a robe-like garment that’s insanely comfortable, and most likely your ryokan will come with one—and put your feet up in your private living room. Reflect on the day’s adventures and start planning for tomorrow.

Enough is enough. You’ve been working for too long without going on holiday, and it’s time you hit the road for a while. Pick the perfect traditional Japanese hotel and let Wotif score you an amazing deal. Send us a postcard and maybe even a kimono or two, please.
