Hotel Patio Dogo, Matsuyama

(viewed 1591 times)
Japanese Hotels, #4 of 7. Behind the quaint misspellings and cheerful amateur look of the English section of its website, lies a ruthlessly efficient business hotel with fabulously helpful English-speaking staff.

Nishikiso Bekkan, Nagasaki

(viewed 1707 times)
Japanese Hotels, #3 of 7. It'd be lovely if it wasn't for the sixty or so steep stone steps you have to climb to get to it. Three cheers for the owner's son, who carried my heavy suitcase back down them on his head.

Nakazono Ryokan, Kagoshima

(viewed 1886 times)
Japanese Hotels, #2 of 7. Recommended in all the guidebooks, and with good reason: Mr Nakazono is perfectly happy dealing with all the peculiarities of western tourists.

Kashima Honkan, Fukuoka

Japanese Hotels, #1 of 7. Comfortable, old-fashioned Japanese inn: nothing spectacular, but everything in just the right place.

Taken 19/11/2004 during Japan holiday. I couldn't get in close enough to take pictures of actual sumo action, so this was the next best thing.
