If you really want to get the feel of traditional Japanese culture, you may opt to stay in a ryokan or a minshuku. A ryokan is a traditional inn while a minshuku is a family-run version of ryokan. Ryokans are quite pricey compared to other accommodations but it’s a definite must-try to experience a legit Japanese stay-in. If you opt to try it, expect that everything will be minimalist: the rooms, furniture, and the beddings. Private bathrooms are rare in these places. Usually, it is done communally, much like how Japanese people do it. But, it is really worth the try.
