STAY & RELAX STAY & RELAX STAY & RELAX

Full-service resort, a traditional Japanese-style inn where you can sleep in a tatami mat room, or a pension that welcomes you with open arms? Let’s find the lodgings that suit you.

Hotel

The mountain resort areas of western Iwate Prefecture in particular are home to large full-service hotels that boast hot springs, gyms and a variety of restaurants on their premises. There are also business hotels located near each of the seven shinkansen stations in the prefecture, which are recommended for those wishing to sleep in an ordinary bed (as opposed to a futon) or foreign travelers looking for service in their language.

Ryokan

There are plenty of cozy ryokan inns in areas far from railway stations and in thermal zones specializing in serving regional Japanese food. Few have bedrooms – sleeping is mainly in a futon on the tatami floor. Many ryokans offer a yukata robe (a simple kimono) to wear.

Onsen (Hot Springs)

Hot springs are one of the finest ways to relax in Japan and have long been used to cure ailments and injuries. The outdoor hot springs of Iwate, where bathers luxuriate amid nature with either an ocean view on the coast or a mountain view inland, are some of the best in Japan. When booking a hotel or ryokan, be sure to check whether they have your kind of hot spring on the property.

Pension

Situated near leisure facilities such as ski resorts, farms, and wild mountain areas, you will receive a warm welcome at a pension. Many are very flexible about their menu so if you have special dietary requirements, simply let the staff know.

Hostel

Hostels, where you sleep on a dorm bed, are good for those wishing to minimize accommodation expenses or those staying at a destination for a long time. One joy of hostels is the opportunity to meet with other travelers.
