Tokyo is an innovative and ever-changing city visited by people from all over the world. In this modern metropolis, though, there are still some special places where you can experience traditional Japanese lifestyle. These are the ryokan, or Japanese inns.
Staying at a ryokan in Tokyo, you can actually touch and feel original Japanese culture: the daily life of the Japanese people, calmness, beautiful spaces, harmony, hospitality, and more.

Experiencing this timeless culture will give you an insight into the Japanese way of thinking and values and will also help you to appreciate what you encounter during your travels around Japan more deeply.
