Traditional Town Stays

Experience the charms of local life in a historical town

Japan’s historical townscapes are at the crossroads of history and culture. Over the centuries, these towns have become centers of commerce, craft and community. Stay in beautifully preserved and repurposed homes and stores and stroll the meandering streets, long after the day trippers have gone. Connect with the local people and exchange ideas; discover hidden restaurants, secret gardens and serendipitous paths. Get lost in these charming towns and find yourself.
