Top tips for finding the perfect Japan hotel

  • Find out as much as you can before setting off to visit this extraordinarily varied and fascinating country. For example, did you know that Japan is home to some of the best skiing in the world? Check out the hotels such as the Hakuba Alpine Hotel just 4h from Tokyo, or the Green Leaf in the Niseko resort in the snowy mountains (second highest average snowfall in the world) of the northern island of Hokkaido.
  • Although we think of Japan as an ultra-urban society, there are countryside retreats too, many with spas making use of volcanic springs of hot water bubbling up from deep underground. The Akizuki Spa Ryokan Seiryuan in Asakura on the southern island of Kyushu is available to book through KAYAK. There are excellent spas located in the big cities too; the well-regarded Shimoda Tokyu Hotel is one of many hundreds of spa hotels bookable through KAYAK.
  • Try to spend time in other cities apart from Tokyo. Osaka and Kyoto are relatively close to one another and less than 3h by train from Tokyo. Osaka is brash and colourful but still has hidden oases of peace and quiet in its public gardens and shrines. It is famous for its huge array of traditional Japanese food, that includes sushi of course but, as you will discover, there is a lot more to Japanese cuisine than rice and fish.
  • Kyoto is always popular in early April as people come to view the cherry blossom during the hanami season. There are plenty of Kyoto hotels such as the centrally located Resol Kyoto Kawaramachi Sanjo bookable through KAYAK but make sure you secure your accommodation well in advance if you plan to be in Kyoto in April.
  • If you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Japan, you should consider visiting during the low season. You'll find cheaper accommodations in Japan in June and January.
  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Japan if you stay on a Tuesday. The opposite is true for, Saturday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 89 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Japan accommodation.
  • The cheapest 3-star hotel room in Japan found on KAYAK in the last 2 weeks was $21, while the most expensive was $1,386.
  • How long should you stay? KAYAK users usually book their accommodation in Japan for 3 days.

FAQs when booking a hotel in Japan

  • Are there any beach resorts in Japan?

    Yes, there are hundreds of beach resorts with sandy beaches and clear water. The sea around most of Japan rarely gets above the mid-twenties Celsius even in summer so it’s a little bit cooler than the Mediterranean but still fine for swimming, snorkelling and diving. Accommodation available through KAYAK ranges from five-star luxury such as the Busena Terrace in Nago, famous for its pineapples and turquoise seas, to simple seaside B&Bs and hostels on the remote and fabulously unspoilt Yaeyama Islands at the southern-most tip of the Japanese archipelago.

  • Is Japan an interesting destination for lovers of wildlife?

    Surprisingly for such a densely populated country, Japan has incredible wildlife – bears, snow monkeys, sea eagles, elegant cranes, and sea mammals of all kinds. Book accommodation at Shiretoko Village through KAYAK for bear-spotting trips in the nearby national park, or think about a winter wonderland stay at one of the many country hotels in Hokkaido to see the dancing cranes, sea eagles and snow monkeys in their hot pools.

  • What are Japanese ‘love hotels’?

    The world’s first love hotel opened in Osaka in the mid-sixties and the concept has spread across the world. Japan has thousands of love hotels in city centres and along the inter-city expressways but despite their romantic name, love hotels are very practical, allowing travellers to rent a hotel room for a small number of day-time hours – perfect for visitors spending just a few hours in a city. Search ‘love hotels’ to book totally flexible stays through KAYAK.
