Ryokan, Special Places to Stay in Japan


In our trip to Gifu we stayed one night in a typical ryokan. Ryokans are typical hotels were everything is japanese style and everyone can experience the japanese atmosphere of a traditional house. Some places are more conservative than others but you can experience the various elements that compose japanese life style. Rooms are in tatami and you will have a futon to sleep. This one is in Ogaki (10 minuts train from Gifu City) and we recomend it sincerely, despite the age of the building, it should have worked for many years.

岐阜に旅行したとき、昔ながらの旅館に泊まりました。こういうところでは伝統的な日本の家を体験できます。旅館でももっと保守的なところもあるようですけど、ここは気取らない感じでよかった。畳の部屋で、寝るのはもちろん布団。ここは本当におすすめですね。岐阜から電車で近い街=大垣。建物は古いけれど、長い時間を経てきたことを感じさせてくれますね。


The look of our room when we arrived at night. The ryokan owner (You should call Ryokans owner "Nakai San") a really nice japanese lady that speaks english was already waiting for us. We could hear the water in the close streams.

夜に到着した時の部屋の様子です。旅館の女性オーナーは親切に私達を迎えてくれました。
近くを流れる水のせせらぎも聞こえましたよ。


Breakfast the next morning. The tradicional japanese breakfast composed by rice, fish, tofu and an infinity of local and seasonal speacialities. Nakai-san called us just before the misoshiru "started to get cold", in her own words. Hospitality to the most highest level.

翌朝の朝食。魚やごはん、とうふ地元の旬の食材でつくられた朝ごはんです。
私達が遅いので、仲居さんが呼びに来たとき、味噌汁がさめちゃいますよー、と言っていましたね。こういう心遣いが嬉しいですね。
