We frequently see the traditional Japanese hotels which give a feeling of calmness and quietness, but who knows the name of these hotels?
Let’s get inside a Traditional Japanese Ryokan in details …
The Ryokan is the name of the old Japanese hotels that still preserve the origins of the Japanese culture.
It differs from any other hotels all over the world due to its architectural style and special form.
From the first moment you enter the Ryokan, you should take off your shoes whilst they will provide you with slippers to wear inside the hotel and if you want to take a walk out there, you can use the wooden Ryokan sabot which is called (Gita). Also, you’re not allowed to walk with your slippers above the “tatami” which is the mats that are in the Ryokan rooms, but you can use your socks or your bare feet; and don’t worry as tatami is very clean.
