I prefer budget hotels or hostels. Although, I would like to stay in a ryokan and other traditional places for at least a night in every city.

Hi rusty. I was in Japan in August 2004 and stayed at the following places.


The hotel in Osaka is by far the cheapest and best value place we stayed at in Japan. It is just outside of the city centre and a little difficult to find, but sandwiched between two train stations.

The ryokan in Tokyo is very nice (though cramped). I probably wouldn't recommend you stay there as it is too far from the action. I suggest a place in Roppongi, Shinjuku, or Shibuya.

Toyoko Inn is a chain of business hotels in Japan. The one in Hiroshima is close to the JR station. Price includes breakfast, free internet, free shuttle bus to/from station, and ensuite bathroom. Definitely recommended.

Hope you have a great holiday. Message me if you need more information ;)
