Travel accommodation, for some, is merely a convenient location to sleep and store their belongings while they’re off on grand adventures. For others, the hotel they choose to stay in is a part of the journey itself, a place to relax and experience the mood of the local area, free from the everyday stresses of life.
If you’re looking for a place to stay that’s a destination in itself, Japan has you covered. From sleek modern mountain escapes to traditional ryokan with natural hot springs, these Japanese resorts, hotels and ryokan are so stunning they might just be the highlight of your next trip.
