Japan Hotel Tips: 10 Things to Know About Japanese Hotels

With the improvement of economic level, tourism is also booming, more and more people choose to travel to Japan. Here is a brief introduction to the strategy of traveling to Japan.



1. Accommodation Reservation

In addition to the general hotel reservation platform for global travel, most of the niche hotels in Japan can only be booked on the website or by e-mail, and there is a reservation platform "jalan" that Japanese people use. In the absence of many rooms during the peak season, you can look at this platform.



2. House Price and Payment

Different from domestic room charges, the price of accommodation in Japan is charged by the number of people. Fee payments are generally divided into two types: deduction at check-in and settlement at check-out. Business hotels and apartments are mostly deducted at check-in because the room does not have a mini bar. While the hot spring hotel is basically settled at check-out, so there is no need to hand in cash or a card when you check in, and there is basically no deposit for Japanese hotels.



3. About "Hotel"

In the "Hotel Industry Law" in Japan, a hotel is defined as an accommodation facility that charges accommodation for others to stay, except for simple accommodation and rental housing. So living in a "hotel" in Japan, but a very petty one choice!



4. About "Residence"

Residence is a popular mode of travel accommodation in recent years, where you can get along with roommates, travel also has the feeling of coming home. Generally, laundry and kitchen utensils are all available, and you can experience everyday life like local people. Some theme-based accommodation will also attract many people to come and live for three or five days, which is in short supply. Nevertheless,  I would like to remind you that the hygiene of residential quarters must be paid attention to. It is not necessary to clean up before leaving, but at least you can not put garbage in disorder everywhere, or even stain the walls, otherwise it will be possible to collect cleaning or compensation fees.



5. About "Slippers"

In the Japanese hotels, generally guests of should take their shoes off at the entrance of the door or in front of the guest room door, and wear slippers in and out of the hotel. Be careful not to wear shoes outside directly into the hotel. In the room you are usually barefoot. Avoid dragging luggage on the tatami to protect the tatami from damage. If you stay in a Western-style hotel, you can wear shoes or change slippers just as you would normally do.



6. About "Bathing Spot"

Japanese love bathing, which has resulted in a unique hot spring culture. Apart from hot spring hotels which can introduce hot spring water, some apartment hotels also have public baths. Most noteworthy of all is that people with large tattoos can not go to the bath, because traditionally the Japanese think that tattoos are not very friendly existence. If the Japanese see people with tattoos, they will have conflicts and even fears. Since it is a public bathroom, you must pay attention to hygiene. The first step after changing clothes is to clean the whole body. No matter whether you have just taken a bath or not, you can't wear any clothes or towels when you enter the soup pool. The prepared small towel can be wiped sweat on the head, but it can not be put into the water to wash. Children need to be quiet, playing with water may affect others. After bathing, please dry your body water and walk around the dressing area.



7. About "Bathrobe"

The bathrobe is called a kimono and is usually replaced after the bath. If you stay in a Japanese hotel, you can wear it both inside and outside your room. Japanese people are used to taking a morning bath and then going to eat, so it is normal to wear a bathrobe in the restaurant. In some spa towns, guests are allowed to wear bathrobes to go out to the hotel and visit the hot springs, but most of them are not allowed to wear bathrobes and leave the hotel.



8. About "Quilts"

Don't be surprised when you first step into a tatami room. The traditional Japanese sleeping quilt is directly laid on the tatatami. According to the Japanese habits, the quilt was rolled out before going to sleep, and after getting up in the morning, it was folded into the closet. This will not take up space and make effective use of space. The same is true for staying at the hotel. The staff will lay the bedding when you have dinner or go to the bathroom, so don't be surprised.



9. About "Dining"

Usually the hotel's meals are generally the breakfast of the Western-style hotel, while the Japanese-style hot springs can choose to have breakfast and dinner, which is included in the room rate. The variety of dishes is generally determined by the hotel, and the dishes are arranged according to the season. In order to attract guests, the hotel will take out the most distinctive ingredients for cooking, and the taste and service level are very high, which will bring surprises to your travel and leave a memorable memory.


10. Some Details

If you book a non-smoking room, you can't smoke in the room. Japan has strict requirements for smoking, and of course there are optional smoking rooms for demand. Enter the hotel and the corridors of each floor to whisper and try to keep quiet, especially for wooden buildings, because the sound insulation effect is general. Some hotels may not prepare toiletry bags. You need to prepare your own toiletry bag.



Hotels in Japan are one of the most comprehensive places to show delicate and subtle Japanese service. I hope you can feel the warmth and comfort of your home in this short stay.
