One of the important things about traveling is accommodation! There are a lot of choices, so it is hard to decide. MMN will introduce to you “four things you should know about accommodation in Japan.”
1: I want to stay at a traditional Japanese facility!
For staying at Japanese traditional facilities, ryokan and minshuku are recommended! Sometimes there are cheap hostels that are styled like a ryokan too so your stay won’t be too expensive either! You should check out MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s FOOD category for further details about recommended accommodation.

2: What’s the difference between a ryokan and a minshuku?
A Ryokan is a traditional Japanese-style inn and if you’re set on getting the full Japanese experience, a Ryokan is what you’re looking for. They offer two meals and the times in which they offer meals are usually set. Usually meals are cooked by professional chefs. Sometimes there are onsens, too.
A minshuku on the other hand is commonly family-run or local people-run. You can visit local recommended spots and have local food. It can also be a cheaper alternative to the ryokan!
3: Where should I stay in Tokyo?
If you want to enjoy shopping, the Shinjuku and Shibuya areas are good. Especially, Shinjuku Station is a huge station that offers many train lines that’ll get to anywhere you want to see. You’ll definitely find it convenient to get around to places!
If you want to enjoy sightseeing in a downtown area, the Asakusa area is recommended. There are cheap guest houses for foreign tourists in this area so please check it out.
4: How is the use of Airbnb in Japan?
There are a lot of accommodations on Airbnb. You can definitely find something that will suit your needs if you choose not to stay at a hotel or ryokan. Please check out MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’s FOOD category for further details about Airbnb in Japan.
