About this item

Richly illustrated and exhaustively researched, Japanese Inns & Hot Springs is the definitive guide to Japanese spas and hot springs known as Ryokans.

  • Tips on how to choose the right ryokan for you

Above all else this Ryokan guide reveals the enduring traditions of Japanese hospitality, a rich heritage reaching back a thousand years to the time when Japan's hot spring bathing culture took root. The beautiful properties in this book also illustrate the unique design sensibility for which Japan is so justly renowned.

Indispensable tips on booking a Japanese Ryokan that is right for you and reaching each property by train, bus and taxi are provided along with a detailed etiquette guide to staying at a Ryokan and bathing in an Onsen, as well as descriptions of the special features of each of the inns featured.
