Luxury Japan Accommodation

Luxury Accommodation Japan

Japan is a country known worldwide for its attention to detail and aesthetic refinement. Nowhere other than in its national monuments and many temples and Zen rock gardens is this more apparent than in its multifarious array of luxury accommodation on offer across the islands that make up the nation.

The Japanese are sticklers for the small details, and in the luxury resort and hotel market that means guests can expect everything to be thought of before they arrive, from the welcoming committee, the amenities in the rooms, and the attentive service throughout their stay. In the major cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Sapporo, the biggest selection of five-star hotels can be found.

The seacoasts of Japan are also home to some of the splashiest luxury hotels in the country, and destinations such as Fukuoka and the beaches of Okinawa are popular both with foreign visitors and Japanese holidaymakers looking to pamper themselves.

When choosing a spa hotel or resort that's right for you, Japan offers two distinctions aside from the many choices in either category: the western style hotel or the native ryokan, or inn. Ryokan can be as opulent as some of Japan’s most upscale five-star hotels, but with a distinctly local feel which can be very attractive for the foreign visitor.

A stay in a ryokan involves having at least one or two servants bring you your meals in your room and turn down your futons at night. The big attraction with ryokan accommodation is that it usually goes hand in hand with the Japanese obsession with bathing in hot springs. Thus, the best areas to go for a relaxing stay in a ryokan with your private hot spring just outside your sliding wooden shoji door are in the Japan Alps, in prefectures such as Nagoya or Nagano. Coming in winter affords the visitor an inimitable and undeniably relaxing atmosphere.

The most common business destinations like Osaka and Tokyo offer many luxury hotels that are equipped with the most modern business facilities available, all run with the impeccable efficiency the Japanese are famous for.
