Welcome to Japanese Inn Group

The Japanese Inn Group is a group of small Ryokans born in 1979 to welcome guests from abroad and Japan with Japanese hospitality.

Our ryokans are homey, reasonably priced, and run by families.
The 46 members of our group spread throughout Japan have many fans both in Japan and abroad.
It’s our great pleasure to help you make good memories. Please have a wonderful trip!


Features of our member hotels

Why You Should Stay at a Japanese Inn Group Member Hotel

Inns are located throughout Japan, both in major cities and in the countryside.
Members are modest inns with reasonable prices.
We offer personable service and at-home style hospitality.
At our small, family-run accommodations you can experience the traditional Japanese lifestyle with tatami mat floors and futons for bedding.

You can choose to make your reservation as you like — with or without meals.  (Many ryokans strictly require guests to have meals at the inn, but Japanese Inn Group members are flexible — you can freely decide your stay plan.) 
Each inn is unique and individually owned and operated — we are not a hotel chain with identical franchises.

Best Place to Stay in Toyko! We have stayed here at least seven times over the past 16 years, and this is still a gem!
