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.


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.


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.
