Accommodation


When it comes to accommodation, Japan has more diversity than perhaps anywhere else on Earth. For budget travellers on the go, pop into a tiny, quaint capsule hotel. For a couple looking for private time, book a sprawling room themed like a maze and discover the country’s distinct love hotel culture.

For sophisticated travellers looking to escape the city, immerse yourself in an elegant traditional inn with soothing hot springs in the mountains. And for everyone else who just wants to meet a robotic talking dinosaur, check into a robot hotel. But before you choose, be sure to check out our budget travel tips, so you can grab exactly what you’re looking for!
