This itinerary includes mid-range Western-style hotels (approximately three star) in Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Breakfast is included every day.
In Hakone National Park you will stay in a ryokan. Like hotels, ryokan vary in grade and price. In general, guest rooms have sliding doors, paper screens and tatami reed-mat flooring, and you'll sleep on thick futon mattress placed directly on the floor. Most guest rooms do not have en-suite bathrooms; instead there are communal, gender-separated hot spring baths, sometimes open air, great for relaxing in after a long day of sightseeing. But the real highlight of any ryokan stay is the food. Included dinners consist of a dozen or so intricate, seasonal dishes. At higher end ryokan, dinner is served privately in your guest room.
