Japan offers many different kinds of unique accommodation solutions. Naturally, you can find the more common business hotels and youth hostels as we know them throughout the world. However, you can also find functioning capsule hotels, exclusive ryokan inns, and let’s not forget the famous love hotels. One of the first things you should keep in mind when choosing your Japanese accommodation is that many smaller businesses are hesitant to accommodate foreigners. This is due to the fact that they fear difficulties or misunderstandings that can arise due to the language barrier as well as other cultural differences. Many of the larger travel agencies specializing in visits to Japan have standardized this process by filling their data bases only with accommodations that are willing to accept foreigners. When these accommodations have been filled they then inform their clients that all lodgings are full. Some of the other key points that you should keep in mind is that prices are usually higher on Saturday nights and that it is very difficult to find a room during the busier holidays (ie: “Golden Week” which falls during the beginning of May).
