▶ In Japan, there are two types of inns. One is the Western style hotel, and the other is the traditional Japanese style inn called a ryokan. In many ryokan, you can enjoy the old-style accommodation, Japanese food, and hot springs.
▶ When you enter your room, you will find tea, sweets, and a yukata. Yukata is a kimono-style sleepwear. You can also wear this to the public bath or to the public eating area.
▶ At night, you sleep in a futon on the tatami floor. The futon you sleep on is a thin folding mattress. The top futon is like a comforter. The staff prepare the futon on the floor at night.
