Japan accommodation is mostly concentrated in the major tourist centres including Tokyo and the popular ski villages of Niseko and Hakuba. Offering an excellent range of recognised western branded accommodation as well as local hotel chains, Japan accommodation offers a familiar standard of rooms for a reasonably affordable price close to all of the most popular areas and attractions. For a more authentic and also affordable accommodation experience, there are also a great range of Japanese-style accommodation options which, although being a smaller and more compact room layout, offer a comfortable and restful place to spend the night. Many of these traditional Japanese-style accommodation options also offer their own onsite onsens, or thermal hot springs, which is a quintessential experience for any visit to Japan.
Tokyo offers a comfortable range of accommodation options conveniently located in the heart of downtown Tokyo’s neon metropolis as well as the Tokyo Narita Airport. Ranging from affordable and compact accommodation options to luxurious and more spacious hotels, Tokyo offers accommodation in a number of internationally recognised hotel chain brands as well as local hotel chains and boutique properties.
Although much of Hakuba’s accommodation is geared towards traditional Japanese style, there are still some great western style chalets and apartments also available. Hakuba accommodation is clean and comfortable, however rooms and bathrooms tend to be smaller than that of their more western influenced counterparts. For those who prefer the space and luxury of western style accommodation, be prepared to book early to avoid disappointment.
Dominated by low rise apartments and hotels, Niseko accommodation enjoys unspoilt views of breathtaking Mt Yotei and the ski slopes. Featuring ski-in ski-out accommodation as well as a great range of apartment style hotels, Niseko accommodation is conveniently located within walking distance of a variety of bars, restaurants and après ski entertainment. Most Niseko accommodation also offer shuttle services to the ski slopes and main village.
